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.
In searching for a way to review topics before exams, I was informed about this powerpoint template which is macro'd to be operated as a realistic Jeopardy game. The site for the original author of the macro is:

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.
Our CHEM145 is offered once every two years: TR 75 min synchronous lectures, F 4 h in-person lab.
A one-semester study of advanced topics in inorganic chemistry with emphasis on structure and bonding, transition metal chemistry, organometallic and solid-state chemistry.
This worksheet was designed as an in-class, group activity in a flipped classroom. It relies on an understanding of the octet rule and common charges of various elements, as well as basic nomenclature of ionic compounds. The worksheet teaches students to balance simple redox reactions (in which only the oxidized and reduced atoms are present) by identifying half-reactions, counting electrons transferred, and multiplying half-reactions to "cancel" electrons.
This course will emphasize the fundamental concepts needed to understand the diverse chemistry of all the elements of the periodic table. The common theme for the entire course will be Structure and Bonding. The primary focus will be inorganic molecules, ions and solids, but the concepts we will discuss are applicable to all aspects of chemistry. The first two-thirds of the course will cover theories of bonding in molecules and solids along with some background in symmetry and structure.
A collection of all of the IONiC VIPEr NanoCHAts. These are short discussion on a teaching topic by 4-5 faculty members from different institutions. Each of these events is recorded and posted to the IONiC VIPEr YouTube Channel.

The discussion covers a 2021 publication by the Chirik group (Nature Chemistry, 2021, DOI: 10.1038/s41557-020-00614-w) which details the discovery of a new way to polymerize butadiene through iron-catalyzed [2+2] cycloadd
