2023 Content Building Workshop - Morgan State University

Submitted by Chip Nataro / Lafayette College on Tue, 06/27/2023 - 10:56

This is a list of all of the learning objects developed in association with the 2023 content building workshop. Prof. Robert Gilliard was the featured speaker for this workshop, so most of the LOs will focus on his work.

Synthesis and Characterization of Aluminum Complexes of Redox-Active Pyridyl Nitroxide Ligands (Graves/Schelter)

Submitted by Shirley Lin / United States Naval Academy on Mon, 05/08/2023 - 08:32
Description

This literature discussion focuses on a Inorg. Chem. article that describes a series of Pt complexes that exhibit competitive reductive elimination reactions to form either an sp2-sp3 bond or an sp3-sp3 bond. One of the complexes also contains a C-C agostic interaction with the metal. The questions are written to be addressed by students in a foundation-level inorganic course.
