Inorganic Chemistry

Inorganic chemists seek to describe the physical characteristics and reactions of inorganic substances, a daunting task considering the enormous range of properties and bonding exhibited by the elements.

This one semester course builds upon the knowledge that was gained in CY101-2 and CY351-2, and focuses on the nuclear origin of the elements, the structure of metallic and ionic solids, and a detailed description of the structure and reactions of transition metal complexes.
