RSC Transition Metal Games

Submitted by Amanda Reig / Ursinus College on Wed, 08/10/2022 - 14:48
Description

RSC has a series of chemistry games that can be downloaded from their website. The link here is specifically for games related to transition metals. There are three games (a Jeopardy! style game, a Password-style game and a Taboo-style game).  The game formats could easily be adapted to other content. You may need to sign up for a free instructor account to access the resources.

Introductory Inorganic Chemistry
Description

A systematic study of chemical principles as applied to inorganic systems. This class consist of a 3 hour lecture and a 4 hour lab. Special emphasis is placed on group theory and the use of molecular orbital, ligand field, and crystal field theories as tools to understanding the structure and reactivity of inorganic compounds.

Inorganic Chemistry
Description

This course lays a foundation in the subjects of atomic structure, bonding theory, symmetry theory, and acid-base chemistry, which is then used to explore advanced topics involving crystalline compounds, coordination compounds, and organometallic compounds. Topics include bonding, spectroscopy, and kinetics.

VIPEr Fellows 2022 Workshop Favorites

Submitted by Barbara Reisner / James Madison University on Sun, 06/26/2022 - 14:31

The second cohort of VIPEr fellows pulled together learning objects that they've used and liked or want to try the next time they teach their inorganic courses.

Bioinorganic Chemistry

Submitted by KVH / Harvey Mudd College on Wed, 06/08/2022 - 13:46
Description

Metals in biological systems can perform a wide range of reactions with exquisite efficiency and selectivity. In contrast, performing many of the same reactions in the lab requires harsh conditions and/or rare, expensive materials.

Discussion of "Dirhodium(II/II)/NiO Photocathode for Photoelectrocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution with Red Light" (Turro)

Submitted by Jason D'Acchioli / University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point on Sat, 05/21/2022 - 12:13
Description

This Learning Object is dedicated to Prof. Claudia Turro as part of the VIPEr LGBTQIAN+ LO collection created in celebration of Pride Month (Jun) 2022. Prof. Turro was featured in the April 2022 special virtual issue Out in Inorganic Chemistry: A Celebration of LGBTQIAPN+ Inorganic Chemists (https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.inorgchem.2c00729). Claudia holds a special place in my heart. I came out later in life, and she was incredibly supportive as I wrestled with my identity as a gay man.

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Martin McPhail / University of West Georgia on Thu, 05/19/2022 - 15:19
Description

The wave nature of electrons is applied to atomic structure and periodic trends. Inter and intramolecular bonding models are used to interpret the chemical and physical properties of various materials, from simplistic diatomic molecules to structurally complex molecular and ionic systems.

5 Slides about:Photophysics and photochemistry of MLCT excited states (Wilson)

Submitted by Tracky Huang / Cornell University on Tue, 03/15/2022 - 13:54
Description

This Five Slides About will introduce the basic photophysical and photochemical concepts associated with the metal-to-ligand charge-transfer (MLCT) transitions using luminescent rhenium and ruthenium complexes as examples. The potential therapeutic use of photoactivated metal complexes to kill cancer cells is also presented.
