Course Description

This course will build upon previous courses to cover advanced material in the fields of modern inorganic and physical chemistry.

Inorganic chemistry will cover the study of the transition metals including the rare earth and radioactive elements, and also the reactions, structure, and properties of inorganic compounds.

Physical chemistry will deepen the understanding of atomic and molecular structure and chemical bonding. The study of catalysis will be developed and applied to green chemistry and industrial processes.
