(3 credits) 3 hours lecture, 1 hour tutorial, 4 hours lab
This course is a study of the models and concepts underlying the field of inorganic chemistry, and the physics of chemical species in the solid state. Topics covered will include coordination complexes, crystal structures, and electronic models of solids. The laboratory component involves synthesis and analysis of inorganic compounds, investigation of semiconductor materials, and research on nanotechnology. Credit for both Chemistry 3401 and Physics 3401 will not be permitted.
Prerequisites: Chemistry 1201, Chemistry 1202 and Physics 1202, all with a grade of C- or higher.
NOTE: Credit for both Chemistry 3401 and Physics 3401 will not be allowed.
