CH3514 – Physical Inorganic Chemistry


Dr B. E. Bode* and Dr J. A. McNulty

(*Module Convenor)


To be able to apply spectroscopy for structure determination in inorganic chemistry and to understand the physical chemistry and molecular orbital theory of transition metal complexes.

Covers analysis of inorganic compounds by elemental analysis, mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopies with particular emphasis on isotopologues and quadrupolar nuclei. This includes theory of the methods and data interpretation including identification of compounds from analytical data.
