This collection of learning objects was created to celebrate the National ACS Award Winners 2022 who are members of the Division of Inorganic Chemistry. The list of award winners is shown below. 

Orca Computational Chemistry Tutorials (Neese)

Submitted by Amanda Reig / Ursinus College on Thu, 04/04/2024 - 13:53

Frank Neese was honored with the 2024 ACS Award in Inorganic Chemistry for outstanding accomplishments in combining high-level theory with experiment to obtain insight into the properties and reactivities of transition-metal complexes and metalloenzymes. 

His major contributions to the field have been through the development and dissemination of his free computational modeling software program ORCA, which is used by thousands of researchers across the fields of inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry.

Europium-based Contrast Agents

This learning object (LO) focuses on a recent JACS paper (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2022, 144, 23053 -23060), which explores the chemistry of EuII-based contrast agents.

1FLO: Introduction to Borylene Ligands (Braunschweig)

Submitted by Shirley Lin / United States Naval Academy on Thu, 03/14/2024 - 09:55

This literature discussion LO was created for the ACS National Award Winners 2024 collection. Dr. Holger Braunschweig was the recipient of the 2024 M. Frederick Hawthorne Award in Main Group Inorganic Chemistry. This LO is based on a figure from the article "Transition metal borylene complexes" published in Chem. Soc. Rev., 2013, 42, 3197. DOI: 10.1039/c3cs35510a.

Using MOF and zeolite nanoparticles to produce microporous water (Mason)

Submitted by Hilary Eppley / DePauw University on Wed, 03/13/2024 - 13:01

In fall 2023, Jarad Mason from Harvard University was awarded the ACS Award in Pure Chemistry for his contributions to the fields of phase-change materials, microporous materials, and materials chemistry.  In this literature discussion, students will examine his recent paper “Microporous water with high gas solubilities," Nature 2022, 608, 712-718 which is related to that work.

New Members of the Class of [Fe(CN)x(CO)y] Compounds (Koch)

This LO was written by the IONiC Leadership Council to celebrate Steve Koch as the recipient of the 2024 ACS Award for Distinguished Service in Advancement of Inorganic Chemistry. Steve has been a major supporter of the IONiC community since its inception. This LO is based on the article New Members of the Class of [Fe(CN)x(CO)y] Compounds. published in Inorganic Chemistry (DOI: 10.1021/ic015604y).
