Matter appears in different forms and therefore its physical and chemical properties are deviating from each other. This lecture aims to get these properties across to the students in a phenomenological way. First of all, the different states of matter are discussed and different widely-used classification schemes based on states or properties are being presented. In the second part of the course specific material properties such as mechanical, thermal, optical and thermal properties will be adressed. Finally the physico-chemical properties being relevant for any chemical reaction are in the focus of the lecture.
