Description

Syllabus for Inorganic Chemistry lecture taught in Spring 2022.

Introductory Inorganic Chemistry
Description

A systematic study of chemical principles as applied to inorganic systems. This class consist of a 3 hour lecture and a 4 hour lab. Special emphasis is placed on group theory and the use of molecular orbital, ligand field, and crystal field theories as tools to understanding the structure and reactivity of inorganic compounds.

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Jennifer Young / Azusa Pacific University on Tue, 06/28/2022 - 17:57
Description

This course lays a foundation in the subjects of atomic structure, bonding theory, symmetry theory, and acid-base chemistry, which is then used to explore advanced topics involving crystalline compounds, coordination compounds, and organometallic compounds. Topics include bonding, spectroscopy, and kinetics.

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Emma Downs / Fitchburg State University on Tue, 06/07/2022 - 12:52
Description

The course will cover the elements of the periodic table that are omitted in general and organic chemistry, mainly the transition (d-block) metals.

Metal-Ligand Multiple Bonds: The Discovery of “Double Nickel” (Hillhouse)

Submitted by Anthony L. Fernandez / Merrimack College on Wed, 06/01/2022 - 00:52
Description

This LO focuses on creating complexes with multiple bonds between late transition metals and nitrogen. The questions will guide students through Mindiola and Hillhouse's communication that details the synthesis and investigation of three-coordinate terminal amido and imido complexes of nickel. This communication is significant because it describes the synthesis and structural characterization of what became known as his "double nickel" complex, which contains a Ni-N double bond.  

Discussion of "Dirhodium(II/II)/NiO Photocathode for Photoelectrocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution with Red Light" (Turro)

Submitted by Jason D'Acchioli / University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point on Sat, 05/21/2022 - 12:13
Description

This Learning Object is dedicated to Prof. Claudia Turro as part of the VIPEr LGBTQIAN+ LO collection created in celebration of Pride Month (Jun) 2022. Prof. Turro was featured in the April 2022 special virtual issue Out in Inorganic Chemistry: A Celebration of LGBTQIAPN+ Inorganic Chemists (https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.inorgchem.2c00729). Claudia holds a special place in my heart. I came out later in life, and she was incredibly supportive as I wrestled with my identity as a gay man.

Mechanistic Study of Competitive sp3-sp3 and sp2-sp3 Carbon-Carbon Reductive Elimination from a Platinum(IV) Center and the Isolation of a C-C Agostic Complex (Williams)

Submitted by Shirley Lin / United States Naval Academy on Fri, 05/20/2022 - 08:09
Description

This literature discussion focuses on a J. Am. Chem. Soc. communication that describes a series of Pt complexes that exhibit competitive reductive elimination reactions to form either an sp2-sp3 bond or an sp3-sp3 bond. One of the complexes also contains a C-C agostic interaction with the metal. The questions are written to be addressed by students in a foundation-level inorganic course.
