Inorganic Chemistry III(2.0 credits)

Course Type:Basic Specialized Courses
Class Format:Lecture
Course Name : Chemistry
Starts 1 : 3 Spring Semester
Elective/Compulsory : Elective
Lecturer : SAMJESKE Gabor arwed Designated Professor 

•Course Purpose
Inorganic chemistry III is the final part of a three-semester course in inorganic chemistry consisting of parts I, II, and III. Aim of the three-semester course is to present principles and fundamentals of inorganic chemistry, to introduce chemical reactions and to show examples of the role of inorganic chemistry in the industry, environment and every day lives.

At the end of the complete course (Inorganic Chemistry I, II, III), students should have learned a robust foundation in physical inorganic principles and also applications of the subject to catalysis and industrial processes.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Fundamentals of Chemistry I and II, Analytical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry I, Inorganic Chemistry II

•Course Topics
The course Inorganic Chemistry III will be structured as follows: (chapter refer to the used textbook, Housecroft)

Class 1: d-block metal chemistry/general considerations (chapter 19)
Class 2: d-block metal chemistry/coordination complexes (chapter 20)
Class 3: d-block metal chemistry/coordination complexes (Part II)
Class 4: d-block metal chemistry/the first row metals (chapter 21)
Class 5: d-block metal chemistry/the first row metals (Part II)
Class 6: d-block metal chemistry/the heavier metals (chapter 22)
Intermediate exam
Class 7: d-block metal chemistry/the heavier metals (Part II)
Class 8: Organometallic compounds of s- and p-block metals (chapter 23)
Class 9: Organometallic compounds of d-block metals (chapter 24)
Class 10: Catalysis & some industrial processes (chapter 25)
Class 11: d-block metal complexes/reaction mechanism (chapter 26)
Class 12: d-block metal complexes/reaction mechanisms (Part II)
Class 13: f-block metals/lanthanoids & actinides (chapter 27)
Final exam (comprehensive)

Depending on the situation a shift of topics between classes might happen

•Grade Assessment
Grading will follow the rules for G30 students who have entered NU before AY2020 (5 letter system) or since AY2020 (6 letter system):

maximum TOTAL 100% (= 100 pts)

Homework submission: 10% (= 10 points)
Intermediate exam: 40% (= 40 pts)
Final exam (comprehensive): 50% (= 50 pts)
The intermediate and final exam are mandatory!

Grades are final and calculated on the basis of the performances during class (homework submission) and in the two exams only. There will be no possibility to improve a grade after the final exam. Students who miss the final exam due to a (documented) illness, injury or other unavoidable reasons can ask the instructor.
The course will be graded "F" (failed) if less than 60% of the total points were obtained. The course will be graded as "absent" ("A" or "W") if withdrawal was applied before the intermediate exam, as stated in "course withdrawal"

Face-to-Face class and remote class (on-demand class) combined.

•Contacting Faculty
Students can ask questions during class or after class, ask by email or make an appointment with the instructor
