CH2210 - Syntheses and Mechanism in Inorganic Chemistry
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
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.
- describe the chemistry of main block and lanthanoid elements;
- explain the physical and chemical behaviour of transition metal complexes;
- apply knowledge of chemical kinetics and thermodynamics to the stability of transition
- discuss the important mechanistic pathways for inorganic reactions;
- employ basic synthetic methodology to produce and characterise typical inorganic compounds.
