CHE*311*10 Description


Inorganic Chemistry with Laboratory


This course is an in-depth study of structure and bonding in molecules. Topics include atomic structure, symmetry and bond theory, ionic and covalent bonding, coordination and organometallic chemistry, and catalysis. The laboratory work focuses on the synthesis and characterization of the following: main group compounds, bioinorganic molecules, zeolites, coordination and organometallic complexes used in catalysis. It also introduces green inorganic chemistry, computation chemistry, and metal complexes used in bioinorganic chemistry. Three hours of lecture and three hours of laboratory work each week. Co-requisite: Chemistry 305. Offerred annually: Fall. Prerequisite(s): CHE 305
