Arrow Pushing in Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Abhik Ghosh, University of Tromsø - The Arctic University of Norway

Over the last few years, my colleague Steffen Berg and I at UiT - The Arctic University of Norway have developed a new approach to teaching descriptive inorganic chemistry based on organic-style arrow pushing. The approach has been shown to work well for main group chemistry. Two articles have been published in the Journal of Chemical Education illustrating the approach for both simple and rather complicated main group reactions:
