Inorganic Chemistry I

Submitted by Cody Webb Jr / Hartwick College on Wed, 06/14/2023 - 01:57
Description

This course focuses on the chemistry of the elements, including electronic structure, bonding and
molecular structure, ionic solids, coordination compounds, the origins of the elements, and the descriptive
chemistry of the elements. Topics also include inorganic synthesis, materials science, industrial chemistry,
and an introduction to bioinorganic chemistry.

Materials Chemistry

Submitted by Deborah Polvani / Washington & Jefferson College on Mon, 06/12/2023 - 09:33
Description

Materials Chemistry will explore many of the fundamental relationships between a material’s chemical structure and the subsequent interesting and useful properties that result.  In order for advances in electronic, magnetic, optical, and other niche applications to be made, an understanding of the structure-property relationship in these materials is crucial.  This course will emphasize inorganic systems, and topics will include descriptions of various modern inorganic solid-s

Advanced Inorganic Chemistry
Description

This course is an introduction to modern inorganic chemistry. Topics include principles of structure, bonding, and chemical reactivity with application to compounds of the main group and transition elements, including organometallic chemistry.
