CHEM 362 Inorganic Chemistry (4)
This course presents a comprehensive investigation of transition metal complexes. Topics include: atomic structure, periodicity, and bonding theories of d-block metals; 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. Additional topics include nuclear chemistry and photovoltaic semiconductors. Students engage in scientific communication via projects such as formal writing or a podcast that serves as outreach to general audiences.
