 SCI 223 - Chemistry II

Content

Modern concepts of bonding are introduced to explain the structure and the physical and chemical properties of materials. For organic materials the emphasis is on basic linkages in molecules (single, double, triple bonds and aromatics), important functionalities (alcohol, aldehydes, ketones, etc.), and structure-reactivity patterns leading to syntheses. Inorganic chemistry focuses on trends in the periodic table on the basis of properties of metal-containing compounds, including coordination complexes. Relevant topics include Redox chemistry and chemical stability. In addition, the optical and electronic properties of inorganic solids, both metals and semiconductors, are consid​ered in relation to their crystal structure and the type of bonding. Practical relevance is an important aspect of the course, enlivened by computer-assisted molecular modeling.
