CY2111 ENGINEERING CHEMISTRY – I SYLLABUS|ANNA UNIVERSITY FIRST SEMESTER SYLLABUS


AIM
To impart a sound knowledge on the principles of chemistry involving the different
application oriented topics required for all engineering branches.

OBJECTIVES
• The student should be conversant with the principles water characterization and
treatment of potable and industrial purposes.
• Principles of polymer chemistry and engineering applications of polymers
• Industrial applications of surface chemistry
• Conventional and non-conventional energy sources and energy storage devices and
Chemistry of engineering materials

UNIT I WATER TECHNOLOGY
Characteristics – alkalinity – types of alkalinity and determination – hardness – types and
estimation by EDTA method (problems); Domestic water treatment – disinfection
methods (Chlorination, ozonation. UV treatment) – Boiler feed water – requirements –
disadvantages of using hard water in boilers – internal conditioning (phosphate, calgon
and carbonate conditioning methods) – external conditioning – demineralization process
– desalination and reverse osmosis.

UNIT II POLYMERS AND COMPOSITES 
Polymers-definition – polymerization – types – addition and condensation polymerization
– free radical polymerization mechanism – Plastics, classification – preparation,
properties and uses of PVC, Teflon, polycarbonate, polyurethane, nylon-6,6, PETRubber
-vulcanization of rubber, synthetic rubbers – buty1 rubber, SBR, Composites –
definition, types polymer matrix composites – FRP only.

UNIT III SURFACE CHEMISTRY
Adsorption – types – adsorption of gases on solids – adsorption isotherms – Frendlich
and Langmuir isotherms – adsorption of solutes from solution – role of adsorbents in
catalysis, ion-exchange adsorption and pollution abatement.

UNIT IV NON-CONVENTIONAL ENERGY SOURCES AND  STORAGE DEVICES
Nuclear energy – fission and fusion reactions and light water nuclear reactor for power
generation (block diagram only) – breeder reactor – solar energy conversion – solar cells
– wind energy – fuel cells – hydrogen – oxygen fuel cell – batteries – alkaline batteries –
l e ad–acid, nickel–cadmium and lithium batteries.

UNIT V ENGINEERING MATERIALS
Refractories – classification – acidic, basic and neutral refractories – properties
(refractoriness, refractoriness under load, dimensional stability, porosity, thermal
spalling) – manufacture of alumina, magnesite and zirconia bricks, Abrasives – natural
and synthetic abrasives – quartz, corundum, emery, garnet, diamond, silicon carbide
and boron carbide. Lubricants – mechanism of lubrication, liquid lubricants, - properties
– viscosity index, flash and fire points, cloud and pour points, oilyness) – solid lubricants
– graphite and molybdenum sulphide. Nanomaterials – introduction to nanochemistry –
c arbon nanotubes and their applications
