This course aims to strengthen the fundamental concepts and foundations that are necessary for Inorganic Chemistry. Atomic structures will be discussed in terms of quantum theory which would help describe the important trends within the periodic table. Then, molecular structures will be discussed in terms of different models in covalent bonding. Lastly, molecular symmetry will be used to discuss the bonding and structure for different kinds of molecules.
