This is a discussion leader to bring students into the topic of "Metals in Biochemistry- Structural Roles" by reminding them of pieces they already know from General Chemistry and other courses.
A student should be able to apply their knowledge of Lewis acid-base theory to predict the amino acids that will bind a particular metal. A student should be able to apply their knowledge of transition metal oxidation states to predict whether the metal can play a redox role. A student should be able to apply their knowledge of VSEPR to predict structure.
This is mainly a discussion leader. Assessment focuses on student's ability to apply this same logic to other systems at a later time
