Chapters to Focus in Inorganic Chemistry for April Attempt !!

By Gagan Makkar|Updated : March 31st, 2021

Inorganic chemistry is the study of the formation, synthesis, and properties of compounds that do not contain carbon-hydrogen bonds. Inorganic topics include-  Hydrogen, S- Block Element, P- Block Elements, d- and f- Block Elements (Transition Elements), Co-ordination and Classification of Elements & Periodicity in Properties, General Principles & Processes of Isolation of Metals Compounds, Environmental Chemistry.

Inorganic chemistry is the study of the formation, synthesis, and properties of compounds that do not contain carbon-hydrogen bonds.

  1. Weightage : Weightage of inorganic chemistry are : 4% for coordination compounds, 5% for s-block elements, 6% for p-block elements, 2% for Co-ordination and Classification of Elements & Periodicity in Properties. Many questions are asked from this inorganic part. Approximately 40-50%.
  2. Previous trends: Questions are asked regarding preparation, properties, position of elements in periodic tables etc. Many questions are asked directly from your NCERT textbook. Chemical bonding is the most important part of inorganic chemistry, it’s concepts are even used in organic chemistry. Second is the s-block and p-block element. D-block elements and their transition are asked every year. Questions are asked directly from the hydrogen part.
  3. Pattern of question: In inorganic chemistry, mainly theoretical questions are asked which includes methodology, preparation, properties, characteristics of different elements of the periodic properties. Chemical bonding constitutes a major portion of inorganic chemistry.

 Strategies to deal with most common question:-

  1. Study properties of Oxides, peroxides, hydroxides, carbonates, bicarbonates, chlorides and sulfates of sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium.
  2. For transition elements, focus on definition, general characteristics, oxidation states and their stability, color and calculation of spin-only magnetic moment.
  3. Memorize the periodic table very well. Also, understand the bonding between different elements of the same group or different groups.
  4. Try to write all important formula and equation at one place to revise before the exam. Be thorough with chemical reactions and properties.
  5. For metallurgy, try to understand all metallurgical operations and their applications. And once this is done, study for the individual elements.
  6. Make a practice of translating a word equation into chemical equations in terms of chemical formulas.This would help you to understand any type question involving different chemical equations.
  7. Read co-ordination compounds and understand it’s concept deeply. Isomerism is the important and scoring sub-topic of this part.
  8. Inorganic chemistry consists mainly of reactions, so try to understand it instead of mugging up. You need to revise theories in inorganic chemistry from time to time.
