CHE 503: Inorganic Chemistry
This course is intended to provide students with a broad background in inorganic chemistry. The fundamental concepts of coordination chemistry are developed, including the structure, electronic properties, and reactivity of transition metal complexes. Elements of group theory are introduced to describe the fundamental underpinnings of spectroscopic and crystallographic characterization methods. Fundamentals of organometallic chemistry and catalytic reaction mechanisms are covered. The course may include introductions to bioinorganic chemistry and solid-state inorganic chemistry.
