Advanced Inorganic Chemistry (CHMI 3317 E)

Course Description:

CHMI 3317 focuses on some more advanced aspects of Inorganic Chemistry which have not been discussed in previous courses. Topics include: Supramolecular chemistry, host/guest chemistry, fullerenes, bioinorganic chemistry, organometallic chemistry, chemistry of metal clusters, homogeneous catalysis in important industrial processes, advanced concepts in inorganic chemistry (18 valence electron rule, skeletal electron counting rules, MO theory, isolobal concept, etc.).
There is also a lab component (CHMI 3317ELL) to this course. The lab is mandatory and has to be completed (i.e., passed) in order to pass the course.
