Inorganic Chemistry Tutorials for High School, Advanced Level, Grade 12

In inorganic chemistry, you will study about about elements in periodic table and their characteristics, compounds, physical and chemical properties, reactions, colours and more. You have to remember these things for examinations to do questions.


Inorganic Compounds Examples

  1. Sodium chloride: NaCl - a neutral salt
  2. Sulfur dioxide: SO2 - an acidic gas
  3. Oxygen gas: O2 - Gas
  4. Sulfuric acid: H2SO4: An acidic compound in water

Inorganic chemistry sections

You have to learn following sections in the inorganic chemistry.

Section Content
s block chemistry Alkali metals alkali earth metal reaction with water, oxygen, nitrogen and more
p block chemistry Elements of p block, their reactions and compounds are discussed.
3d metals chemistry Variable oxidation numbers, density, reactivity and other different parameters of 3d metals are discussed.
Qualitative analysis of inorganic compounds Learn, how to identify cations and anions.


According to the your syllabus, all things in our tutorials are not necessary to learn. Please refer your school syllabus and then find what you want to learn.

How to learn inorganic chemistry

Inorganic chemistry can be boring to some one because it has so much to study.

s,p,d blocks Chemistry

Study of Compounds, Reactions, Physical properties, Chemical properties of s,p,d block elements and their compounds are explained in out lessons series.


s Block elements chemistry - Group IA and IIA

s block contains very reactive metals and they react with so many non-metals such as oxygen, chlorine, sulfur and more.

Hydrogen includes in the group IA of s block. But Hydrogen show some alkali metal properties and halogen properties too.

Beryllium also show amphoteric properties and beryllium compounds also have amphoteric characteristics.

Here we discuss about s block in detail about s block.


p Block chemistry for High School, advanced level

Metals, non metals, Metalloid contain in the p block. Also we can see occurrence p block elements in all states, solid, liquid, and gas.

  1. Solids : Aluminum(Al), Boron(B)
  2. Liquid state : Bromine(Br2)
  3. Gaseous state : Nitrogen(N2), Oxygen(O20

We study p block elements, compounds and their physical properties such as melting and boiling points, solubility in water and chemical properties such as reactions with acids and bases, water, air and more.

Chemistry of nitrogen

Elemental nitrogen occurs as a very stable diatomic molecule(N2). There is a triple bond between two nitrogen atoms in N2. N2 comprises 78% of the atmosphere, Also nitrogen occurs in many other naturally occurring materials including nitrates and amino acids. Ammonia(NH3) is a very important industrial compound which contain nitrogen. Nitrogen forms toxic gaseous compounds such as NH3 and NO2.


Nitrogen and it's compounds



Chemistry of sulfur

Sulfuric acid is a compound which contains sulfur as an element. Sulfur also forms gaseous compounds such as sulfur dioxide (SO2) and sulfur trioxide (SO3).

There are many minerals that contain sulfur; among them are galena (PbS), zinc blende (ZnS), cinnabar (HgS), iron pyrites (FeS2 ), gypsum (CaSO4), and chalcopyrite(CuFeS2), CuS2.



Chemistry of oxygen



Qualitative Analysis for inorganic chemistry

We will identify anions and cations in qualitative analyisis. When we study qualitative analysis, we should have a good knowledge in chemistry of s, p, d blocks.

See full list of qualitative analysis

Transition metal, d block chemistry

In these tutorials we study mostly 3d metals.
