Learning Goals

The focus of experimental work in this course is designed to familiarize students with basic and advanced
inorganic synthetic and characterization techniques. Students will create a variety of inorganic materials
including coordination complexes, hierarchical inorganic compounds, and nanomaterials. Students will then
evaluate the molecular structure and properties of these compounds using techniques including magnetic
susceptibility, powder X-ray diffraction, and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy.
