Bonding, structures, preparation, properties, compounds, and reactions
of main group and transition metal elements. Offered fall semester.
By the end of this course at ONU, a student should be able to:
- Express an appreciation for the diversity of bonding throughout the periodic table, including descriptive chemistry of the elements.
- Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of 3-dimensional structure when considering coordination compounds.
- Describe crystal field theory, and relate the changes in orbital energy to changes in shape, oxidation number, and identity of ligands.
- Apply band theory to materials systems, metals, semiconductors, superconductors, and ceramics.
- Compare and contrast molecular, ionic, metallic, and network solids in terms of structure, characteristic properties, and energy considerations.
- Describe the role of mechanism in directing metal-centered reactivity.
- Recognize structural characteristics and properties of metal ions in biological systems.
- Describe the types of measurements and techniques that provide the foundation for inorganic theory.
