65411 Inorganic Chemistry 1

6cp; 4.5hpw
Requisite(s): 65212 Chemistry 2 OR 65213 Chemistry 2 (Advanced)


This subject is based on the chemistry of transition metals. Topics covered include structural aspects of transition metal compounds, nomenclature, bonding theories, spectroscopic and magnetic properties, stability of complexes and medical applications of ligands and transition metal complexes. This subject builds on concepts introduced in 65212 Chemistry 2 and 65307 Physical Chemistry 1 to aid the development of models for the understanding of the observed properties of transition metal compounds. The concepts learned in this subject provide a foundation for 65509 Inorganic Chemistry 2 where structural aspects of advanced materials as well as the bioinorganic chemistry of metalloproteins and biominerals are developed.
