Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Mitch Anstey / Davidson College on Tue, 07/27/2021 - 10:37
Description

Inorganic chemistry is a branch of synthetic chemistry typified by its focus on compounds composed of elements other than carbon and hydrogen. But don’t let that fool you!

Advanced Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Paul Smith / Valparaiso University on Wed, 07/21/2021 - 10:42
Description

A one-semester study of advanced topics in inorganic chemistry with emphasis on structure and bonding, transition metal chemistry, organometallic and solid-state chemistry.

Predicting solubility using HSAB and Bronsted acid/base strength
Description

This activity is a guided approach to answering the following: "Give an example of a silver (Ag+) salt that is expected to be soluble in water." It requires students to consider both HSAB and Bronsted acid/base concepts when evaluating solubility.

I use the activity at the end of the unit on reactivity of ions in aqueous solutions, after we have gone over all of the relevant concepts, and the question (without scaffolding) is similar to what I might ask on an exam.
