Inorganic chemistry
horizontal and vertical trends in the periodic system.
1. kwantummechanical basis of the periodic system 
2. vertical trends (associated to isolated atoms, and to chemical properties of atoms and moleculen)
3. horizontal en diagonal trends (variations in chemical properties, ion-covalent step, oxides, hydrides, catenation)
4. isoelectronic and isostoichiometric relations
5. Characterisation methods: XRD, AAS, ionchromatography
