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

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

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.

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 1

Submitted by Stephanie Poland / Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology on Mon, 01/10/2022 - 10:16

Course catalog description: The chemistry of non-metals. This course consists of a systematic study of the properties and reactions of the elements and their compounds based upon modern theories of the chemical bond, as well as from the viewpoint of atomic structure and the periodic law.

Efficient Hydrogenation of Ketones Catalyzed by an Iron Pincer Complex

Submitted by Todsapon T. / University of Evansville on Tue, 11/23/2021 - 11:40

This literature discussion involves various aspect of organometallic chemistry ranging from synthesis, reactions, symmetry, NMR and IR spectroscopy of organometallic compounds as well as catalysis.

Students are asked to read the article published in Angewandte Chime, and answer the questions from the worksheet. Students later discuss their answers with the entire class.

Inorganic Chemistry I

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

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. 

Advanced MO Diagram Activity

Submitted by Jacob Lutter / Wayne State University on Tue, 08/24/2021 - 13:10

This in class activity will walk students through a more advanced example for MO diagram generation from scratch. The students will work through the symmetry, point group, character table, and MO diagram of PH2F3.
