Bioinorganic in Miessler, Tarr and Fisher

Submitted by Adam R. Johnson, Harvey Mudd College

It was pointed out at our recent bioinorganic workshop at Northwestern that the new version of MT&F has no chapter on bioinorganic. 

If you don't have the bioinorganic chapter from previous editions, you can request chapter 16 from the following online form (you need ot contact your Pearson rep).  Maybe if a lot of us from the VIPEr community request the chapter, they will re-include the chapter in the next edition.

We previously had only one semester of inorganic chemistry, and now we are adding a "foundational" course to conform to ACS guidelines.  Because some of the descriptive chemistry of the elements is covered in general chemistry (and frankly can often be quite boring for students) we decided to replace that material with bioinorganic applications in our foundational course, in the hope that both chemistry majors and bio majors/chem minors will enjoy it.

Shriver & Atkins 5th- a few beefs

Submitted by Christopher Cahill, The George Washington University

Hi All-


My first post- how exciting!  Was wondering if anyone else feels the way I do about S&A 5th (or 4th, for that matter).  I just got through the first three chapters after switching from M&T. I am struggling to decide whether I regret this or not.
