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