|Chemistry 332||CH 332|
|Basic Inorganic Chemistry II: Transition Metals||3 (3-0-3-0)|
A continuation of CH 331 with an emphasis on Transition Metal compounds. Covers the structure, bonding, properties, and reactivity of coordination compounds. Topics include Crystal Field Theory, Molecular Orbital Theory, electronic spectra, reaction mechanisms, and electron transfer reactions. A brief introduction into organometallic chemistry is also given. Practical work focuses on the synthesis and analysis of coordination and organometallic compounds.
