This course is offered in the third semester for the BSc in Chemistry students. It provides a comprehensive survey of structure, bonding, properties and applications of various Coordination Compounds. It offers a complete knowledge on general trends of Transition elements, Lanthanoids and Actinoids. It also stretches a brief concept on inorganic chemistry Reaction Mechanism.
After completion of this course, students can impart
essential theoretical knowledge on Coordination chemistry and as well as on the
general trends of Transition
elements, Lanthanoids and Actinoids. Students can also build their problem-solving
skills on the above-mentioned topic. This will help them in various competitive
examinations like IIT-JAM. In Coordination chemistry unit students gained
knowledge on structures, bonding, properties, and reaction mechanism of various
coordination compounds. Students now can calculate the CFSE, predict the
geometry and magnetic properties in a given coordination complex. They also
understood the reason of different colours among the coordination complexes. Chemistry
of transition elements gave students information regarding some analytically important
compounds. In Lanthanide and Actinide chemistry students gained knowledge on
their general properties.
