The objective of this subject is to provide a foundation for the varying chemistry of the elements in the periodic table. Topics in this subject include: the chemistry of s- and p- block elements, coordination chemistry of the transition metals (d- block) and of the lanthanoids (f-block). The subject will also explore the kinetics and mechanism of inorganic reactions, the magnetic properties of metal compounds and spectroscopic techniques used in the characterisation of these compounds.
