This course will be taught by a number of staff members in the field of inorganic chemistry under different topics according to each staff member.
Physical properties of solutions; chemical kinetics; chemical equilibrium; acids and bases; acid-base equilibria in aqueous solutions; solubility and complex ion equilibria; chemical thermodynamics; electrochemistry.
Synthesis of selected transition and nontransition; metal complexes and study of their chemical; magnetic; conductance and spectral properties. The course also includes a series of lectures covering the theoretical aspects of inorganic synthesis and structure elucidation.
Course Content: X-ray diffraction by crystals and elucidation of structure. Topics dealt with are: Crystal lattices systems, space groups and derivation of equivalent positions; the reciprocal lattice concept; collection of diffraction data and their reduction; calculated structure factors and Fourier transform; the phase problem; Paterson function and the heavy atom method; other methods; structure refinement. The laboratory work involves data collection by the Weissenberg technique as well as unit cell measurements and space group determination. It also includes sample data reduction and structure determination and refinement using SHETXTL package will be tried with the students on a personal computer.
