Inorganic Chemistry
Description

A systematic study of both the fundamental principles and the descriptive chemistry needed to understand the properties of the main group elements and their compounds. (Three lecture, one recitation, and three laboratory hours per week) Prerequisites: CHEM 1200.

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
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.

Basics of Qualitative Molecular Orbital Theory

Submitted by Austin Scharf / Oxford College of Emory University on Wed, 05/26/2021 - 12:23
Description

This is a worksheet designed for a flipped-classroom, in-class activity during the first course in our chemistry sequence.  It teaches the basics of Molecular Orbital Theory from a semi-qualitative standpoint, by showing the constructive and destructive overlap of s-orbital "wavefunctions."  The activity  illustrates the formation of the bonding and antibonding molecular orbitals in H2, shows its molecular orbital diagram, and introduces the concept of bond order.

Photochemical Reactions of Copper (II) Carboxylate Artist Pigments

Submitted by Hilary Eppley / DePauw University on Thu, 05/20/2021 - 09:57
Description

This literature discussion shows how serious inorganic chemistry topics can related to cultural heritage problems.  The paper is pretty dense in EPR and UV/Vis spectroscopy, but the questions don't go in super great depth on those topics instead focusing on the problem, the main findings, structures and the experiment design, with some additional questions about the spectroscopy.  

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Dean Johnston / Otterbein University on Mon, 04/26/2021 - 17:41
Description

This course will emphasize the fundamental concepts needed to understand the diverse chemistry of all the elements of the periodic table. The common theme for the entire course will be Structure and Bonding. The primary focus will be inorganic molecules, ions and solids, but the concepts we will discuss are applicable to all aspects of chemistry. The first two-thirds of the course will cover theories of bonding in molecules and solids along with some background in symmetry and structure.

nanoCHAts: Informal conversations about teaching

Submitted by Hilary Eppley / DePauw University on Wed, 04/07/2021 - 14:33

A collection of all of the IONiC VIPEr NanoCHAts. These are short discussion on a teaching topic by 4-5 faculty members from different institutions. Each of these events is recorded and posted to the IONiC VIPEr YouTube Channel.
