  • Overview

    This subject is based on the chemistry of advanced inorganic and bioinorganic materials. The subject introduces students to key theoretical concepts of these materials and how they apply to the real world through examples of research and case studies. Topics covered include structural aspects of crystalline prototype structures leading to advanced inorganic structures as well as the bioinorganic chemistry of metalloproteins and biominerals. The subject builds on concepts introduced in 65411 Inorganic Chemistry 1 to aid the development of models for the understanding of the observed crystallographic, spectroscopic and other physical and chemical properties of these materials.


    Course typically offered during the Spring semester
