Inorganic Chemistry I

Submitted by Rudy Luck / Michigan Technological University on Wed, 08/17/2022 - 15:52
Description

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.

Fluorine Azide and Fluorine Nitrate: Structure and Bonding

Submitted by Shirley Lin / United States Naval Academy on Mon, 08/08/2022 - 14:23
Description

This literature discussion was written for a foundation-level inorganic chemistry course to accompany the material on Lewis structures. It utilizes a communication-length article on fluorine azide and fluorine nitrate. The assignment is divided into two parts: a set of questions for students to answer BEFORE they read the communication and then a set of questions that they answer after reading the article.

1 Slide: building better presentations

Submitted by James F. Dunne / Central College on Wed, 07/20/2022 - 14:54
Description

The activity is designed to give students practice and formative feedback in building and delivering professional presentations. After discussing a literature paper in class, students create one slide presenting a major point or idea from the paper.  Students then present their slide briefly (5 min), and the entire class critiques the slide and presentation with two guiding questions: What was done well?  What could have been better?

Introductory Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Nerissa Lewis / Seattle Pacific University on Wed, 06/29/2022 - 00:35
Description

A systematic study of chemical principles as applied to inorganic systems. This class consist of a 3 hour lecture and a 4 hour lab. Special emphasis is placed on group theory and the use of molecular orbital, ligand field, and crystal field theories as tools to understanding the structure and reactivity of inorganic compounds. 

Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Jennifer Young / Azusa Pacific University on Tue, 06/28/2022 - 17:57
Description

This course lays a foundation in the subjects of atomic structure, bonding theory, symmetry theory, and acid-base chemistry, which is then used to explore advanced topics involving crystalline compounds, coordination compounds, and organometallic compounds. Topics include bonding, spectroscopy, and kinetics.

Organometallic Chemistry

Submitted by Laina Geary / University of Nevada, Reno on Tue, 06/28/2022 - 17:51
Description

The goal of this course is to provide an in-depth introduction to the broad subject of organometallic chemistry. Selected topics include: main group organometallics, oxidation states, ligands, structure and bonding, mechanism and mechanistic analysis, cross coupling, hydrogenation, hydroformylation, olefin polymerization, olefin metathesis, and other applications in homogeneous catalysis and organic synthesis.
