Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Dean Johnston / Otterbein University on Mon, 04/26/2021 - 17:41
Description

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.

Proton-Assisted Reduction of CO2 by Cobalt Aminopyridine Macrocycles (Marinescu)

Submitted by Todsapon T. / University of Evansville on Sun, 03/14/2021 - 15:32
Description

Various topics ranging from coordination chemistry, electrochemistry, solid state chemistry and point group and symmetry are discussed from the JACS article published by Smaranda C. Marinescu and her co-workers.  The article describes the conversion of CO2 to CO by using cobalt aminopyridine macrocycle catalysts.
