Inorganic Chemistry II

This course examines coordination chemistry with emphasis on the d-block elements, including structure, reaction mechanisms, kinetics, and spectroscopy. Various bonding models such as valence bond theory, crystal/ligand field theory and molecular orbital theory are described. Electronegativity models, acid/base concepts, elements of symmetry (point groups) as well as aspects of organometallic chemistry, industrial processes and bioinorganic chemistry are also discussed. PREREQ: CHMI 2316. (lec 3, lab 3) cr 3. Students may not retain credit for both CHMI 2317 and CHMI 3316.
