Advanced Inorganic Chemistry's Full Profile
Advanced Inorganic Chemistry is designed to give you the knowledge to explain everyday phenomena of inorganic complexes. You will study the various aspects of their physical and chemical properties and learn how to determine the practical applications that these complexes can have in industrial, analytical, and medicinal chemistry.This course will begin with the discussion of symmetry and point group theory and its applications in the field of vibrational spectroscopy. We will then study molecular orbital (MO) theory specifically applied to metal organic complexes. MO theory will be critical in understanding the following: 1) the relative position of ligands in the spectrochemical series, 2) the electronic transitions and related selection rules, and 3) the application of spectroscopy of metals. The course will then move onto the study of the oxidation states of transition metals and their redox properties. A firm grasp of the chemical redox properties of transition metals is critical to understanding their reaction mechanisms and stability in solution. We will then look at catalysis reactions utilizing inorganic complexes, including industrial practices. Lastly, we will take a look at some real-world applications of transition metal complexes in the fields of medicinal chemistry, solar energy, electronic displays, and batteries.
