  • This course investigates the structure, bonding and reactions of inorganic compounds and materials. Since the d-block metals are different from the s-block and p-block materials in their colour and magnetic properties, different theories, such as crystal field theory and molecular orbital theory, are required to understand these compounds. The bonding in ionic compounds, metals and semiconductors is studied as is the fabrication of integrated circuits, photovoltaic cells and LEDs. The laboratory stresses synthesis and instrumental methods in inorganic chemistry.
