Inorganic Chemistry
Have you ever wondered how a lithium ion battery or a solar cell works? Do you know why a ruby is red, an emerald is green, a sapphire is blue, but the sapphire in your watch crystal is colorless? What is nanoscience? Why do multivitamin tablets contain iron, zinc, cobalt, and calcium? These questions and many others fall in the realm of inorganic chemistry – the chemistry of materials that do not contain carbon. This course is an introduction to the major subfields of inorganic chemistry including solid state, main group, transition metal, organometallic, and bioinorganic chemistry. The physical and structural properties of these materials will be explored using simple bonding theories and symmetry. The chemical properties of these materials will be investigated using basic kinetic and thermodynamic principles. (CHEM 0104 or 0107) 3 hrs. lect.
