SLiThEr #57: What to do when your published results are questioned?

Submitted by Kyle Grice / DePaul University on Tue, 02/13/2024 - 15:19
Description

This was the 57th SLiThEr, presented by Dr. George Stanley, retired professor from LSU. It was a very interesting story and would be a valuable lesson to students about proper characterization and working with challenging and paramagnetic systems. 

SLiThEr #55: "Chemical information meets AI -The continued need for information literacy training"
Description

This is the 55th SLiTher, entitled "Chemical information meets AI -The continued need for information literacy training", presented byJudith Currano  This presentation was an related to Judith's recent fall ACS meeting presentation which explores how research search engines perform searches and how to train students to better utilize these resources.

Peer Review Activity

Submitted by Matt Cranswick / Oregon State University on Wed, 11/02/2022 - 17:49
Description

A colleague and I started using this Peer Review "lab" activity in our studio-based General Chemistry II course to get students to critically think about what they and their peers were writing on lab reports. When the studio-based course was axed, we continued it in the traditional lab during the fifth or sixth week of a 14 week semester.

Inorganic Chemistry I
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.

Bioinorganic Chemistry

Submitted by KVH / Harvey Mudd College on Wed, 06/08/2022 - 13:46
Description

Metals in biological systems can perform a wide range of reactions with exquisite efficiency and selectivity. In contrast, performing many of the same reactions in the lab requires harsh conditions and/or rare, expensive materials.

VIPEr nanoCHAt : NeWBiEs Spring 2022 Learning Objects

Submitted by Shirley Lin / United States Naval Academy on Wed, 02/02/2022 - 18:07

This collection accompanies the IONiC VIPEr nanoCHAt video series NeWBiEs, recorded in Spring 2022. This series is comprised of weekly conversations with two IONiC members, Wes Farrell and Shirley Lin from the US Naval Academy, as they taught a foundation-level inorganic chemistry course for the first time. The LOs discussed in the videos are included in this collection.
