Evidence of a homogeneous trinuclear Rh(I)-Cu(II)-Rh(I) catalyst for benzene C-H oxidative addition and styrene production (Gunnoe)

Submitted by John Lee / University of Tennessee Chattanooga on Wed, 03/02/2022 - 10:26
Description

The literature discussion is based on a manuscript by Gunnoe and coworkers (ACS Catal. 2021, 11, 5688-5702. DOI: 10.1021/acscatal.1c01203). The paper presents mechanistic studies of catalytic oxidative conversion of arenes and olefins to alkenyl arenes with a focus on styrene production.

Reversible, Metal-Free Hydrogen Activation (Stephan)

Submitted by Todsapon T. / University of Evansville on Tue, 03/01/2022 - 16:35
Description

This LO discuss various aspects of a reversible hydrogen activation by a metal-free phosphonium-borate compound.  Attentions are paid to the specific and usual reaction between highly steric phosphine and borane reactants to form a zwitterionic phosphonium borate product.  NMR spectroscopy, kinetics and thermodynamics of the hydrogen activation with the phosphonium borate product are also discussed.  The original work was published in Science by Douglas W. Stephan and co-workers.

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 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.

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.
