Students are asked to provide correct, distinct, and relevant statements about a prompt which includes a coordination complex formula and a Tanabe Sugano diagram. If assigned as an in-class activity, 10 statements meeting the above criteria receive full credit.
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:

The O'Hare group has studied complexes of the permethylpentalene ligand, and recently reported the reaction of a zirconium complex of this ligand with CO2 to form the carbamate. A series of three different complexes were prepared, each with slightly different products upon reaction with CO2, illustrating subtle differences in reactivity based on either sterics or electronics. To further tangle the web, entropic and enthalpic considerations can also be considered.
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.
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.
This In-Class Activity Learning Object explores a series of uranyl, UO
This study guide/question set will help a student navigate through the related research paper and test the student's understanding on the effects of hydrogen bonding in synthetic Cu-O2 adducts in the realm of bioinorganic model chemistry.
In the 2000s, we developed an online tutorial that demonstrates the fundamental principles and applications of the various types of spectroscopy that students will encounter in the inorganic chemistry laboratory, namely infrared spectroscopy (IR), nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) and UV-visible spectroscopy (UV-vis). With the demise of the original Flash browser plug-in at the end of 2020, a revised version 2.0 has been created to update the source content to HTML5. The tutorial has been designed as a stand-alone interactive resource that can either
This literature discussion highlights recent research from the Rosenzweig group that probes the structural and spectroscopic properties of a newly discovered, atypical CuA site located in a PmoD protein in a new class of methane-oxidizing bacteria.
