CHEM 250 - Inorganic Chemistry

Type of Course: Lecture, Laboratory
Deals with theories of structure and bonding and their utility in explaining the chemistry of inorganic substances, especially compounds of transition metals. Topics include: molecular orbital, valence bond, and crystal field theories of bonding and examples of the use of theories in explaining the structure and reactivities of inorganic molecules; acid base theory; spectroscopic methods; and kinetics. Emphasis is placed on the interpretation of structure and reactivity in terms of basic molecular and atomic parameters. In-class and final exams, laboratory reports.
