This subject extends the material delivered in CH2210 with applications in three areas of modern inorganic chemistry: organometallic chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry and inorganic materials chemistry. The organometallic chemistry component covers the bonding, reactions and industrial applications of organometallic compounds including their roles in homo- and heterogeneous catalysis and in organic synthetic transformations ; The section on bioinorganic chemistry covers the importance of transition metals in metallo-proteins and enzymes, the possible applications of synthetic analogues of these species and the use of transition metal complexes in medicine as either therapeutic or diagnostic agents. The inorganic materials section describes the uses of inorganic nanomaterials with a focus on catalysts for solar fuels and solar cells.
