CHEM 0211 - Advanced Inorganic Chemistry

Credits: 3

Fundamental principles of inorganic chemistry will be discussed. Topics will include nucleogenesis, bonding theory, molecular symmetry and its relationship to vibrational spectroscopy, and electronic structure and its relationship to electromagnetic spectroscopy. Where appropriate, emphasis will be placed on the mechanisms of reactions and the relationship between structure and reactivity. Time permitting, this class may also examine additional topics, for example, the role that inorganic compounds play in biochemistry (bioinorganic chemistry), or the formation of covalent bonds in metal-carbon compounds (organometallic chemistry).
