CHEM 362 Inorganic Chemistry (1)

This course presents a comprehensive interrogative of transition metal complexes. Topics include: atomic structure and periodicity of d-block metals; bonding theories of transition metal and main group elements; spectra and magnetism as they relate to electronic structure; and reactions, kinetics, and mechanisms of coordination compounds. Examples from organometallic, solid state, and bioinorganic chemistry are used. An introduction of symmetry and chemical group theory provides a theoretical basis for understanding spectral details.
