Atomic and periodic properties of the elements. A survey of Main Group elements and compounds with particular focus on bonding models 'Valence Bond and Molecular Orbital Theory'. The structures and properties of Main Group inorganic compounds are also covered. Practical laboratory work consists of the synthesis and characterization of inorganic compounds with a significant reliance on spectroscopic techniques.
