Unit Code: CHM603

Unit Name: Inorganic Chemistry

Description: The purpose of this unit is to expand student?s knowledge base in inorganic chemistry by providing new ways of understanding molecular orbitals, bonding, and reactivity. The transition and non-transition elements with an emphasis on structure and reactivity of the elements and their compounds will be discussed. Coordination chemistry of transitions metals including organometallic and bioinorganic chemistry be discussed in significant depth. Primary focus of the coordination chemistry component will be on the stability, bonding, properties and reactivity of coordination compounds and their importance in biological and industrial systems. The applied aspects of inorganic compounds viz. silicates, alum inosilicates, polyphosphates and organometallic and coordination compounds be emphasized.
