Lanthanoids - Electronic configuration, oxidation states and lanthanoid contraction and its consequences. 

Coordination Compounds: Coordination compounds - Introduction, ligands, coordination number, colour, magnetic properties and shapes, IUPAC nomenclature of mononuclear coordination compounds. Bonding, Werner's theory, VBT, and CFT.

Aldehydes, Ketones and Carboxylic Acids: Aldehydes and Ketones: Nomenclature, nature of carbonyl group, methods of preparation, physical and chemical properties, mechanism of nucleophilic addition, the reactivity of alpha hydrogen in aldehydes, uses.

Carboxylic Acids: Nomenclature, acidic nature, methods of preparation, physical and chemical properties; uses. 

Amines: Nomenclature, classification, structure, methods of preparation, physical and chemical properties, uses, identification of primary, secondary and tertiary amines.


Term II: At the end of Term II, a 15-mark Practical would be conducted under the supervision of Board appointed external examiners. This would contribute to the overall practical marks for the subject.


In case the situation of lockdown continues beyond December 2021, a Practical Based Assessment (pen-paper) of 10 marks and Viva 5 marks would be conducted at the end of Term II jointly by the external and internal examiners and marks would be submitted by the schools to the Board. This would contribute to the overall practical marks for the subject. 

Term II Evaluation Scheme:

(1) Volumetric analysis (4 marks)

Determination of concentration/ molarity of KMnO4 solution by titrating it against a standard solution of:

  1. Oxalic acid,
  2. Ferrous Ammonium Sulphate (Students will be required to prepare standard solutions by weighing themselves).

(2) Salt analysis (Qualitative analysis) (4 marks)

Determination of one cation and one anion in a given salt.

(3) Content-based experiment

A. Preparation of Inorganic Compounds 

Preparation of double salt of Ferrous Ammonium Sulphate or Potash Alum.

Preparation of Potassium Ferric Oxalate.

B. Tests for the functional groups present in organic compounds: Unsaturation, alcoholic, phenolic, aldehydic, ketonic, carboxylic and amino (Primary) groups.
