This is one of a collection of learning objects developed to honor the 2021 ACS Award Winners in inorganic chemistry. Marinella Mazzanti from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was awarded the F. Albert Cotton Award in Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry for her outstanding accomplishments in uranium and lanthanide chemistry, including the stabilization of unusual oxidation states and multimetallic cluster synthesis and small-molecule activation. In this paper photoredox chemistry is used to synthesize a uranium (VI) nitride.
A collection of all of the IONiC VIPEr NanoCHAts. These are short discussion on a teaching topic by 4-5 faculty members from different institutions. Each of these events is recorded and posted to the IONiC VIPEr YouTube Channel.
This In-Class Activity Learning Object explores a series of uranyl, UO
This study guide/question set will help a student navigate through the related research paper and test the student's understanding on the effects of hydrogen bonding in synthetic Cu-O2 adducts in the realm of bioinorganic model chemistry.
Ligands can bind to anions, just as they do to metal ions, and Bowman-James developed these analogies as well as many examples of selective anion binding ligands. This short slide decks gives background to her work as well as some relevant introductory material.
This literature discussion highlights recent research from the Weiss group in which electrostatically assembled aggregates of CuInS2 / ZnS quantum dots and trimethylamino-functionalized tetraphenylporphyrin molecules were used to selectively reduce carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide.
This collection of learning objects was created to celebrate the National ACS Award Winners 2021 who are members of the Division of Inorganic Chemistry. The list of award winners is shown below.
Various topics ranging from coordination chemistry, electrochemistry, solid state chemistry and point group and symmetry are discussed from the JACS article published by Smaranda C. Marinescu and her co-workers. The article describes the conversion of CO2 to CO by using cobalt aminopyridine macrocycle catalysts.
The LO focuses upon classic articles describing the synthesis and characterization of the first "texaphyrin" compounds.
This LO is part of a special VIPEr collection honoring the 2021 ACS National Award recipients in the field of inorganic chemistry. Jonathan L. Sessler was the recipient of the Ronald Breslow Award for Achievement in Biomimetic Chemistry for the discovery of expanded porphyrins, molecular recognition via base-pairing, pyrrole-based anion binding, and demonstrating the power of this biomimetic chemistry in drug discovery.
The discussion covers a 2021 publication by the Chirik group (Nature Chemistry, 2021, DOI: 10.1038/s41557-020-00614-w) which details the discovery of a new way to polymerize butadiene through iron-catalyzed [2+2] cycloadd
