VIPEr nanoCHAt : NeWBiEs Spring 2022 Learning Objects

This collection accompanies the IONiC VIPEr nanoCHAt video series NeWBiEs, recorded in Spring 2022. This series is comprised of weekly conversations with two IONiC members, Wes Farrell and Shirley Lin from the US Naval Academy, as they taught a foundation-level inorganic chemistry course for the first time. The LOs discussed in the videos are included in this collection.

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Jason Smee / University of Texas at Tyler on Wed, 01/19/2022 - 16:07
Description

Introductory topics in inorganic chemistry including descriptive inorganic chemistry, solid-state chemistry, and coordination chemistry with the latter area consisting of nomenclature, stereochemistry, bonding, and reaction mechanisms. 

Essential Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by David Benson / Calvin University on Tue, 01/18/2022 - 19:10
Description

Course Description: This foundational course for 2nd-year students covers the properties and trends of molecules derived from across the periodic table. In addition to main-group elements, a deeper understanding of transition metal ions will be developed. Topics covered include periodicity, bonding, symmetry, and reactivity.

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Laurel Goj Habgood / Rollins College on Mon, 01/10/2022 - 16:45
Description

The course is currently designed for a student population impacted by COVID and College policies that the department offer this course every third semester. This semester I have a diverse student population in terms of developmental levels including cohort year (freshman, junior, senior), prior foundational course work (biochemistry, analytical, physical), and research experience. I have altered the assessment part of the course substantively from prior iterations and reduced topic coverage to provide flexibility.

Inorganic Chemistry I

Submitted by Rudy Luck / Michigan Technological University on Thu, 08/26/2021 - 12:41
Description

Descriptive chemistry of the main group elements with some emphasis on the non-metals.  Transition metal compounds: aspects of bonding, spectra, and reactivity; complexes of n-acceptor ligands; organometallic compounds and their role in catalysis; metals in biological systems; preparative, analytical, and instrumental techniques. 

Intermediate Inorganic Chemistry Lecture

Submitted by Meghan Porter / Indiana University on Wed, 08/11/2021 - 11:05
Description

Focuses on structure, bonding, and reaction mechanisms of inorganic compounds using molecular orbital theory as a basis for metal-ligand interaction. Compounds covered include transition metal coordination compounds, organometallic compounds, and bioinorganic complexes. Other topics include redox chemistry, nuclear chemistry, and an introduction to solid-state chemistry.

An editable Review Jeopardy game via a Macro Powerpoint

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Abdul K. Mohammed / North Carolina Central University on Wed, 08/04/2021 - 12:36
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

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.
