CHM 2320 - Inorganic Chemistry

Credits: 4
This course introduces the chemistry of transition metals and main group elements. Topics include theories of bonding, kinetics and mechanisms of reactions of transition metal complexes, oxidation-reduction reactions, hard-soft acid-base theory, and solid-state chemistry. Applications of inorganic chemistry to other areas (organic, analytical, and physical chemistry, as well as biology and biochemistry) are highlighted throughout the course. The laboratory portion of the course involves the synthesis and spectroscopic investigation of inorganic complexes.
Prerequisite(s): A grade of C or better in CHM 2220 .
When Offered: Every fall semester.
Four hours of lecture and one four-hour laboratory per week.
