Inorganic Chemistry I

Submitted by Rudy Luck / Michigan Technological University on Thu, 08/26/2021 - 12:41
Description

Descriptive chemistry of the main group elements with some emphasis on the non-metals.  Transition metal compounds: aspects of bonding, spectra, and reactivity; complexes of n-acceptor ligands; organometallic compounds and their role in catalysis; metals in biological systems; preparative, analytical, and instrumental techniques.

The Safety Net

Submitted by Amanda Reig / Ursinus College on Thu, 08/12/2021 - 11:17
Description

The Safety Net (highlighted in a BITeS post) is a great online resource for crowd-sourced standard operating procedures established by Prof. Alexander J. M. Miller (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and Prof. Ian A. Tonks (University of Minnesota – Twin Cities). It primarily contains SOPs from the Miller and Tonks research groups, but they invite submissions from the chemistry community. It is a treasure trove of useful information, safety resources, and links to physical property databases.

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Abdul K. Mohammed / North Carolina Central University on Wed, 08/04/2021 - 12:36
Description

A systematic study of both the fundamental principles and the descriptive chemistry needed to understand the properties of the main group elements and their compounds. (Three lecture, one recitation, and three laboratory hours per week) Prerequisites: CHEM 1200.

The N5+ Cation: Explosive Chemistry and Raman Analysis (Christe) - Expanded and Updated

Submitted by Katheryn Cruz / University of Texas at Arlington on Tue, 08/03/2021 - 12:32
Description

This paper discusses the synthesis and characterization of a novel compound of nitrogen.  The pre-discussion assignment asks students draw a Lewis structure for the N5+ cation, and using the tools of group theory, conduct a normal mode vibrational analysis, comparing the results to the experimental Raman spectral data.­­ 

Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Mitch Anstey / Davidson College on Tue, 07/27/2021 - 10:37
Description

Inorganic chemistry is a branch of synthetic chemistry typified by its focus on compounds composed of elements other than carbon and hydrogen. But don’t let that fool you!

Photochemical Reactions of Copper (II) Carboxylate Artist Pigments

Submitted by Hilary Eppley / DePauw University on Thu, 05/20/2021 - 09:57
Description

This literature discussion shows how serious inorganic chemistry topics can related to cultural heritage problems.  The paper is pretty dense in EPR and UV/Vis spectroscopy, but the questions don't go in super great depth on those topics instead focusing on the problem, the main findings, structures and the experiment design, with some additional questions about the spectroscopy.  

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Dean Johnston / Otterbein University on Mon, 04/26/2021 - 17:41
Description

This course will emphasize the fundamental concepts needed to understand the diverse chemistry of all the elements of the periodic table. The common theme for the entire course will be Structure and Bonding. The primary focus will be inorganic molecules, ions and solids, but the concepts we will discuss are applicable to all aspects of chemistry. The first two-thirds of the course will cover theories of bonding in molecules and solids along with some background in symmetry and structure.
