CHEM 340 Inorganic Chemistry

This course introduces students to the theories of atomic structure and chemical bonding in main-group, transition-metal, and solid-state. Other topics include symmetry and its applications to bonding and spectroscopy, electronic spectroscopy of transition-metal complexes, mechanisms of substitution and redox processes, organometallic and bioinorganic chemistry. This course uses molecular orbital theory to explain the electronic structure and reactivity of inorganic complexes.
