Advanced Inorganic Chemistry

Welcome to the course advanced inorganic chemistry. This course will consist of two sections taught by Prof. Mark Gandelman and myself (Prof. Graham de Ruiter). In the first part of the course we will discuss the fundamentals of organometallic/inorganic chemistry. Topics include:

  • Molecular Symmetry
  • Molecular Orbital Diagrams
  • Ligand Classes in Organometallic/Inorganic Chemistry
  • Electron Counting and Oxidation State in Metal Complexes
  • Metal-Ligand Bonding

After these five lecture, Prof. Mark Gandelman, will the discuss the application of these ligands/complexes in catalysis, such as hydroformylation, hydrogenation, and cross-coupling reactions.

The course will be held on:

Sunday: 11:30-12:30

Wednesday: 14:30-16:30
