Inorganic Chemistry with Laboratory

This course provides an in depth look at inorganic chemistry concentrating on chemical applications of group theory, molecular orbital theory, the chemistry of ionic compounds, transition metal complexes, organometallic chemistry, catalysis, and bioinorganic chemistry. Students will learn theories and models to analyze the structure and bonding of inorganic compounds and to predict and explain reactions of those compounds. The laboratory introduces a number of experimental and computational techniques used in inorganic chemistry.
