A detailed discussion of the structure, bonding, spectroscopy and reactivity of transition metal compounds. After an overview of descriptive chemistry, the focus is on coordination and organometallic chemistry, with an introduction to catalysis and biocoordination chemistry. The laboratory focuses on intermediate and advanced inorganic syntheses, and classical and instrumental characterization methods. This laboratory is six hours in duration and occurs every week.
CHM338H and CHM331H
Priority will be given to students in the Specialist programs in Biological Chemistry and Chemistry.
