This Literature Discussion LO was created for the 2023 ACS Inorganic Chemistry Award Winners collection. Professor Shannon Stahl was the recipient of the 2023 Organometallic Chemistry Award. This LO is based on a recent paper from the Stahl group entitled "Can Donor Ligands Make Pd(OAc)2 a Stronger Oxidant? Access to Elusive Palladium(II) Reduction Potentials and Effects of Ancillary Ligands via Palladium(II)/Hydroquinone Reox Equilibria" published in J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2020, 142, 19678-19688.
- Identify key information from an article's Introduction and Conclusion sections.
- Interpret equilibrium and electrochemical data.
- Calculate Gibb's free energy values from K and E data.
This LO has not been used yet, but providing the questions and article prior to class is recommended.
This LO has not been implemented yet, but students could turn in their answers after the class discussion.
