Guided reading and in-class discussion questions for "High-Spin Square-Planar Co(II) and Fe(II) Complexes and Reasons for Their Electronic Structure."
This course is a survey of the chemistry of the inorganic elements focusing on the relationship between electronic structure, physical properties, and reactivity across the periodic table. Topics to be covered include: atomic structure, chemical bonding, group theory, spectroscopy, crystal field theory, coordination chemistry, organometallic chemistry and catalysis, and bioinorganic chemistry. Prerequisites: Successful completion of CH120, CH121, (with a C- or better) and CH 301 (suggested)
Course Description: An overview course covering the fundamental principles and theories of inorganic chemistry, with emphasis on the chemistry of d-block elements. Included topics are molecular structure, electronic structure and spectra, bonding descriptions and reaction mechanisms of coordination complexes along with an introduction to organometallic compounds of d-block elements and an introduction to molecular symmetry and point groups.
Structure and bonding in inorganic systems are the general subjects of this course. Both main group and transition metal chemistry are discussed.
This lecture course will introduce students to the interdependence of chemical bonding, spectroscopic characteristics, and reactivity properties of coordination compounds and complexes using the fundamental concept of symmetry. After reviewing atomic structure, the chemical bond, and molecular structure, the principles of coordination chemistry will be introduced. A basic familiarity with symmetry will be formalized by an introduction to the elements of symmetry and group theory. The students will use symmetry and group theory approaches to understand central atom hybridization, ligand
This course introduces the chemistry of transition metals and main group elements. Topics include theories of bonding, kinetics and mechanisms of reactions of transition metal complexes, oxidation-reduction reactions, hard-soft acid-base theory, and solid-state chemistry. Applications of inorganic chemistry to other areas (organic, analytical, and physical chemistry, as well as biology and biochemistry) are highlighted throughout the course. The laboratory portion of the course involves the synthesis and spectroscopic investigation of inorganic complexes.
An introduction to modern inorganic chemistry, including a description of transition- metal complexes and their role as catalysts, and a survey of the reactivity of selected elements of the main group. Three-hour lecture, three-hour laboratory
Introduces students to a broad overview of modern inorganic chemistry. Included are considerations of molecular symmetry and group theory, bonding and molecular orbital theory, structures and reactivities of coordination compounds, organometallic chemistry, catalysis and transition metal clusters. Laboratory experiences will include the measurement of several important features of coordination compounds, such as their electronic spectra and paramagnetism, as well as the synthesis and characterization of organometallic compounds.
