CHE 3300 - Descriptive Inorganic Chemistry

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): CHE 1810

Description: This course covers types of bonding in, periodic properties of, and reactivity of various fundamental inorganic substances. Acid-base, solubility and redox concepts are re-examined with attention to periodic trends, how the concepts overlap each other and together provide context for aqueous environments. The descriptive chemistry of selected members of the main group and the inner transition elements and the most common compounds of these elements are explored with attention to mineral sources and practical uses. Basic concepts of Coordination Chemistry (bonding, ligand types, nomenclature, isomers, ligand field theory) are covered.
