Courses

A survey of the preparations and reactions of selected representative elements and transition metals. The physical and chemical properties of each element are covered, including its extraction and uses and industrial processes.

The application of physico-chemical principles to inorganic systems. Discussion of chemistry of the representative elements utilizing thermodynamic principles and the modern theories of bonding and structure. Introduction to coordination chemistry.

Students will integrate knowledge that they have gained throughout the major and the University Studies curriculum to perform a capstone research project. This will include a lecture component on presenting data in addition to the major laboratory research focus.
