Inorganic Chemistry 2 will focus on d-block elements and their chemistry. Concepts of Lewis acids and bases will be reviewed as necessary foundations as the discussion proceeds to coordination compounds – their bonding, structure, and reactions. Next, the electronic structure for d-block elements will be discussed and how this affects the physical and chemical properties of d-metal complexes. Lastly, reaction mechanisms for d-metal complexes will be discussed.
