Hello Students, this Article will give you the CBSE class 12 chemistry term-2 syllabus for the year 2021. Refer here for the recent Syllabus. You can also download the PDF in the end of this article.
Redox reactions, EMF of a cell, standard electrode potential, Nernst equation and
its application to chemical cells, Relation between Gibbs energy change and EMF of a cell,
conductance in electrolytic solutions, specific and molar conductivity, variations of conductivity with
concentration, Kohlrausch’s Law, electrolysis.
Rate of a reaction (Average and instantaneous), factors affecting rate of reaction:
concentration, temperature, catalyst; order and molecularity of a reaction, rate law and specific rate
constant, integrated rate equations and half-life (only for zero and first-order reactions).
Adsorption – physisorption and chemisorption, factors affecting adsorption of
gases on solids, colloidal state: the distinction between true solutions, colloids and suspension; lyophilic,
lyophobic, multi-molecular and macromolecular colloids; properties of colloids; Tyndall effect,
Brownian movement, electrophoresis, coagulation.
d-and f-Block Elements: General introduction, electronic configuration, occurrence and
characteristics of transition metals, general trends in properties of the first-row transition metals –
metallic character, ionization enthalpy, oxidation states, ionic radii, colour, catalytic property,
magnetic properties, interstitial compounds, alloy formation.
Lanthanoids – Electronic configuration, oxidation states and lanthanoid contraction and its
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.
Nomenclature, acidic nature, methods of preparation, physical and chemical
