Course Description: 

Group theory and modern theories of bonding are used to discuss structural and dynamic features of inorganic compounds. The structure and bonding of transition metal coordination compounds are related to various reaction mechanisms. The principal structural and mechanistic features of transition metal organometallic chemistry are studied with emphasis on catalysis of organic reactions.The role of inorganic chemistry in biological systems is also explored. Prerequisites: Chemistry 222 and 231. One unit.
