Topics in the theoretical aspects of inorganic chemistry.
Specific topics may vary from year-to-year but usually cover:
atomic properties, molecular structure and bonding, structures of
solids, acid/base theories, electrochemistry, structure and
bonding in complex ions, and ligand field therory.
- Four or five hour exams are typical. These are announced
as sections of course material are completed.
- There are usually between five to ten homework
assignments to be completed. One or more may involve
chemical computations at the computer using commercial
- There is a final exam that covers all of the course
