Description: 

CHEM-375 Advanced Inorganic Chemistry

Prerequisites:

CHEM 314/L314 (instrumental analysis/analytical chemistry)

Credits:

3.00

Description:

 

Topics in inorganic chemistry including bonding theories, chemical structures, symmetry and group theory, kinetics and mechanisms of reactions, and spectroscopy. Advanced topics will be organometallics and homogeneous catalysis.

 

Learning Goals: 

Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

Demonstrate mastery of the fundamentals of inorganic chemistry (electronic structure, physical and chemical properties, bonding, inorganic chemical reactions and analyses, stoichiometric relations between reactants).

How the student will be assessed on these learning objectives:

Reading Comprehension Tests, Quizzes, Take Home Exams

 

Advanced chemistry concepts

Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

Apply advanced theories of bonding to the structural geometry and reactivity of coordination complexes.

Apply transition metal chemistry to some relevant and active areas of chemical research and industry.  The applied areas of chemical research and industry that will be focused on in the spring 2018 offering of CHEM 375 will be organometallics and homogeneous catalysis.

How the student will be assessed on these learning objectives:

Proposal:  Metal catalyzed Si-C bond cleavage of dimethylsilanediol (DMSD)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How the course is taught: 
modified-flipped coupled with mostly lecture. Some small group work
