A lecture course focusing on coordination chemistry and complexes. Contemporary theories of bonding and structure are treated rigorously. Preparations, chemical and redox reactions (including mechanisms), magnetism, spectroscopy and applications of coordination compounds are treated. A general survey of transition metals and their descriptive chemistry are also included.
The course aims at providing junior student with a solid background in coordination chemistry, with emphasis on transition metal elements and their coordination compounds. Both theory and descriptive chemistry are involved, at a balanced approach, without mathematical rigor.
At the end of this course students should be able to;
6. Use VBT, CFT, MOT and AOM in predicting structural and conformational preferences among coordination compounds
