Intermediate Inorganic Chemistry Lecture
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.

Photochemical Reactions of Copper (II) Carboxylate Artist Pigments

Submitted by Hilary Eppley / DePauw University on Thu, 05/20/2021 - 09:57
Description

This literature discussion shows how serious inorganic chemistry topics can related to cultural heritage problems.  The paper is pretty dense in EPR and UV/Vis spectroscopy, but the questions don't go in super great depth on those topics instead focusing on the problem, the main findings, structures and the experiment design, with some additional questions about the spectroscopy.  

Anion Coordination Chemistry (Bowman-James)

Submitted by Hilary Eppley / DePauw University on Tue, 03/30/2021 - 14:56
Description

Ligands can bind to anions, just as they do to metal ions, and Bowman-James developed these analogies as well as many examples of selective anion binding ligands.  This short slide decks gives background to her work as well as some relevant introductory material.  

Terminal Uranium (VI) Nitrides: Photoredox Synthesis and Reactivity (Mazzanti)

Submitted by Hilary Eppley / DePauw University on Tue, 03/02/2021 - 12:31
Description

This is one of a collection of learning objects developed to honor the 2021 ACS Award Winners in inorganic chemistry.  Marinella Mazzanti from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was awarded the F. Albert Cotton Award in Synthetic Inorganic Chemistry for her outstanding accomplishments in uranium and lanthanide chemistry, including the stabilization of unusual oxidation states and multimetallic cluster synthesis and small-molecule activation. In this paper photoredox chemistry is used to synthesize a uranium (VI) nitride.
