Hours of instruction:

Weekly: four hours of lectures + six hours of labwork (4+0+6)

Goals:

Inorganic chemistry provides a good foundation for understanding the chemistry of all elements of the periodic table. Therefore, inorganic chemistry is important for understanding all other areas of chemistry. Within this course, students learn primarily about metal complexes, including organometallic compounds and metal clusters.

Outcome:

This course should enable students to acquire knowledge and understanding of the properties and behavior of metal complexes so that they could understand various processes which involve metal ions, from catalysis to living organisms.

Teaching methods:

Lectures, experimental exercises, theoretical/calculation exercises, term papers.

Extracurricular activities:

Coursebooks:

Main coursebooks:

  • Snežana D. Zarić: Hemija prelaznih metala

Supplementary coursebooks:

  • D. F. Shriver, P. W. Atkins: Inorganic Chemistry
  • C. E. Housecroft, A. G. Sharpe: Inorganic Chemistry
  • M. Gerloch, E. C. Constable: Transition Metal Chemistry
