CHEM 444 - Advanced Inorganic Chemistry

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: CHEM 244 with a minimum grade of “C-” and CHEM 340 with a minimum grade of “C-“; and CHEM 382 with a minimum grade of “C-“, which may be taken concurrently
This course builds upon the fundamental concepts established in CHEM 340 Inorganic Chemistry and introduces the advanced topics of molecular orbital theory, molecular symmetry and its applications to vibrational and electronic spectroscopy of inorganic compounds, reaction mechanisms and kinetics of transition metal complexes. Applications of transition metal complexes to the areas of organometallic and bioinorganic chemistry are also examined. Hours arranged. Offered spring semester. May be taken for graduate-level credit.
