CHM 4350 - Bioinorganic Chemistry

Credits: 4
This course will focus on the role that metal ions play in biological systems. The transport, storage, and binding of metals in biological systems will be discussed in great detail. Special attention will be given to the importance of metal ions and their complexes in oxygen transport, Lewis acid catalysis, electron transfer, and signaling, as well as their use as diagnostic and therapeutic agents. Different methods used to study the function of the metal ions (model complexes and specialized spectroscopic methods) will also be covered. Distribution of the 4 hrs between classroom and laboratory time each week will be at the discretion of the instructor.
Prerequisite(s): CHM 2320  and BIO 3037 .
Four hours per week.
