Demonstration of Hard-Soft Acid-Base Theory: An Ion-Exchanger for Recovery of Rare Earth Metals

Submitted by Gary L. Guillet / Georgia Southern University Armstrong Campus on Wed, 07/08/2020 - 08:19
Description

The article from The Journal of the American Chemical Society by M. Kanatzidis et al describes a new ion-exchange material (FJSM-SnS) that shows high selectivity for rare-earth metals (REE) and very fast adsorption kinetics.  A number of techniques are used to characterize the properties of the compound that students may not be very familiar with but the article presents in an accessible way.

Inorganic Active Learning Lesson Plan Design

Submitted by Meghan / Indiana University on Fri, 05/15/2020 - 09:05
Description

I created this activity as a way to get the class involved in creating new, fun ways to teach course concepts (selfishly- that part is for me) and for students to review concepts prior to the final exam (for them).  Students use a template to create a 15-20 min activity that can be used in groups during class to teach a concept we have learned during the semester.  We then randomly assign the activities and students work in groups to complete them and provide feedback.

The benefits are twofold:

Solid State Structures tutorial

Submitted by Terrie Salupo-Bryant / Manchester University on Sat, 03/14/2020 - 12:19
Description

This tutorial will introduce students to some of the three-dimensional crystal structures exhibited by ionic and metallic solids.  They will examine the simple cubic, body-centered cubic, face-centered cubic, and the hexagonal closest-packed systems.  To facilitate visualization of the structures at the atomic level, they will use the Crystal Explorer website at Purdue University.

1FLO: Post-Synthetic Modifications for Tunneling Electrical Connection to the Interior of Metal-Organic Frameworks
Description

This is a 1 Figure lit discussion (1FLO) based on a Figure from a 2015 JACarticle on synthesizing conductive MOFs. This LO introduces students to Metal-Organic Frameworks and focuses on characterization techniques and spectroscopy.

VIPEr Fellows 2019 Workshop Favorites

Submitted by Barbara Reisner / James Madison University on Sat, 06/08/2019 - 16:41

During our first fellows workshop, the first cohort of VIPEr fellows pulled together learning objects that they've used and liked or want to try the next time they teach their inorganic courses.

Advanced Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Jeremy R. Andreatta / Worcester State University on Tue, 06/04/2019 - 23:07
Description

This course is a survey of the chemistry of the inorganic elements focusing on the relationship between electronic structure, physical properties, and reactivity across the periodic table. Topics to be covered include: atomic structure, chemical bonding, group theory, spectroscopy, crystal field theory, coordination chemistry, organometallic chemistry and catalysis, and bioinorganic chemistry.  Prerequisites: Successful completion of CH120, CH121, (with a C- or better) and CH 301 (suggested)
