CHEM 363 Inorganic Chemistry: Transition Metals (.5)

The course begins with a detailed examination of atomic structure and periodic trends, followed by an investigation of the structures, spectra, and magnetic properties of transition metal complexes using a crystal field theory approach. A study of inorganic reaction mechanisms and inorganic acid-base theories will allow a comprehensive approach to understanding metals in biological systems, including metalloprotein catalysis and metal-based pharmaceutical agents.
