Constructing a Class Acid-Base Titration Curve

Submitted by Nicole Crowder / University of Mary Washington on Tue, 07/09/2019 - 17:15

In this in-class activity, each student calculates the inital pH, equivalence volume, and pH at the equivalence point for both a strong acid-strong base and a weak acid-strong base titration.

In addition, each student is assigned a unique volume before the equivalence point and a unique volume after the equivalence point for each titration curve.

The data from the class is then assembled in Excel to construct the two titration curves.

1FLO: PCET and Pourbaix

Submitted by Anne Bentley / Lewis & Clark College on Sun, 06/09/2019 - 12:10

This set of questions is based on a single figure from Rountree et al. Inorg. Chem. 2019, 58, 6647. In this article (“Decoding Proton-Coupled Electron Transfer with Potential-pKa Diagrams”), Jillian Dempsey’s group from the University of North Carolina examined the mechanism by which a nickel-containing catalyst brings about the reduction of H+ to form H2 in non-aqueous solvent.

Submitted by Jason D'Acchioli / University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point on Sun, 06/09/2019 - 11:33

An introduction to the chemistry of inorganic compounds and materials. Descriptive chemistry of the elements. A survey of Crystal Field Theory, band theory, and various acid-base theories. Use of the chemical and scientific literature. Introduction to the seminar concept. 

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Kevin Hoke / Berry College on Sun, 06/09/2019 - 09:39

Theoretical and descriptive inorganic/bioinorganic chemistry. Examines molecular structure and other properties of crystals, coordination compounds, and organometallic compounds. Topics include the roles of metal complexes as acids and bases, in oxidation-reduction reactions, and in biochemical systems. Laboratory in which main group and transition metal compounds are synthesized and studied. This course counts towards the Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Craig M. Davis / Xavier University on Sun, 06/09/2019 - 09:09

Modern theories of bonding and structure, spectroscopy, redox chemistry, and reaction mechanisms. Coordination compounds, organometallic clusters, and catalysis.

Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Carmen Gauthier / Florida Southern College on Sun, 06/09/2019 - 09:03

Fundamental topics in inorganic chemistry will be explored, among them: atomic theory and periodicity of the elements, bonding and properties of solid state materials, main group chemistry, structure and bonding of coordination compounds, and bio-inorganic systems. The laboratory component of the course will give students experience with a various laboratory techniques used in the synthesis and characterization of inorganic compounds.
