CHEM 5330

Structural Inorganic Chemistry: Characterization and Spectroscopy
Spring Semester

Prof. Charles Machan

This introductory-level graduate course begins with a summary of the mathematical language which describes symmetry and focuses on its application to inorganic chemistry. The determination of point groups, use of character tables, and construction of MO theory diagrams will be covered. This will be followed by application of these concepts to spectroscopic methods, e.g. Absorption, IR, Raman, magnetism, and EPR. The material is intended to cover the theory and interpretation of standard spectroscopic techniques relevant to inorganic chemistry
