Inorganic Chemistry 4.1


This is a year-long course in advanced inorganic chemistry with a final exam, a theory assessment and a suite of practicals in semester 2. Areas covered include; acid/base theory, redox chemistry with an emphasis on organometallic chemistry and its industrial applications.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Recognise the pervasive role of acid - base interactions in inorganic chemistry

  2. Explain the role of redox chemistry in solution and the methods of presentation of redox information

  3. Describe the chemistry of hydrogen and of selected aspects of the chemistry of groups 3 and 4

  4. Explain the concepts and reactions of organotransition metal chemistry and detail the molecular basis of metal catalysed industrial processes

  5. Manage practical work on their own or as part of a team in an inorganic chemistry laboratory
