Hours: 
48L/10T/44P

The first part (with CHM338H1) of a two-year sequence in Inorganic Chemistry, designed to illustrate and systematize the rich variety of structures, physical properties and reactions of compounds of the elements across and down the Periodic Table. Introduction to structure, symmetry and bonding of molecules and lattices; acid-base and redox reactions; d-metal complexes; chemistry of elements of the s and p blocks; inorganic materials and solid state chemistry with applications in advanced technologies. (Lab Materials Fee: $50).
