Inorganic Chemistry

Submitted by Martin McPhail / University of West Georgia on Thu, 05/19/2022 - 15:19
Description

The wave nature of electrons is applied to atomic structure and periodic trends. Inter and intramolecular bonding models are used to interpret the chemical and physical properties of various materials, from simplistic diatomic molecules to structurally complex molecular and ionic systems.

A collection of all of the IONiC VIPEr NanoCHAts. These are short discussion on a teaching topic by 4-5 faculty members from different institutions. Each of these events is recorded and posted to the IONiC VIPEr YouTube Channel.

Artificial Photosynthesis Using Quantum Dot / Porphyrin Aggregates (Weiss)

Submitted by Anne Bentley / Lewis & Clark College on Sun, 03/28/2021 - 14:17
Description

This literature discussion highlights recent research from the Weiss group in which electrostatically assembled aggregates of CuInS2 / ZnS quantum dots and trimethylamino-functionalized tetraphenylporphyrin molecules were used to selectively reduce carbon dioxide to carbon monoxide.

Online Seminar Talks

Submitted by Amanda Reig / Ursinus College on Thu, 03/19/2020 - 22:55
Description

In an attempt to find a substitute for our chemistry seminar program, I have found a number of YouTube videos of chemists giving seminar lectures, mostly between 2017-2020. The topics span a range of chemistry disciplines, and are all around 1 hour in length (typical seminar length).  I have not watched them, so I cannot vouch for video quality. Feel free to add additional links in the comments below if you know of or find any great talks.

We will ask students to select and watch a certain number of lectures from the list and then write and submit a one-page summary of the talk.
