CHEM 4320: Inorganic Chemistry
Credits: 3
Unified treatment of the chemistry of the important classes of inorganic compounds and their reactions, with emphasis on underlying principles of molecular structure, symmetry, and bonding theory, including molecular orbital descriptions and reactivity. Prerequisite; CHEM 1420.
CHEM 5330: Structural Inorganic Chemistry: Characterization and Spectroscopy
Credits: 3
Covers mathematical language which describes symmetry and focuses on its application to inorganic chemistry, determination of point groups, use of character tables, and construction of MO theory diagrams. This will be followed by application of these concepts to spectroscopic methods, e.g. Absorption, IR, Raman, NMR, magnetism, and EPR, etc. The material is intended to cover the theory and interpretation of standard spectroscopic techniques.
CHEM 9330: Research in Redox-Driven Inorganic Mechanisms
Credits: 1–12
Research in Redox-Driven Inorganic Mechanisms.
