KOO093 - The synthesis, properties and structures of solid state materials or equivalent.

Aim

The student should understand the role of coordination chemistry in biochemistry, medicine, catalysis, organic synthesis and materials science.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

1. The student should understand the general role of coordination chemistry in biochemistry, medicine, catalysis, organic synthesis and materials science.
2. The student should add and develop the theoretical concepts of coordination chemistry introduced in basic courses in inorganic and organic chemistry.
3. The student should be able to apply these concepts to relevant problems in biochemistry, medicine, catalysis, organic synthesis and materials science.
4. The student should be able to read and understand current scientific literature in the field.
5. The student should be able to present current scientific literature in a clear way to her/his peers.

Content

Organometallic chemistry relevant for organic synthesis, industrial catalysis using coordination chemistry, materials coordination chemistry, Bio-coordination chemistry.  

Coordination chemistry, the interaction between metal ions and other ions and molecules, has a major role in biochemistry (1/3 of all proteins contain metal ions with some fundamental function), in catalysis, both industrial, in the laboratory and in everyday life (catalytic converts for cars, self-cleaning ovens), materials chemistry and as a major component in such vibrant emerging fields of science as nano-technology, and supramolecular chemistry. However, it has been called the "hidden science" since it is often not explicitly treated in the above-mentioned areas.

Organisation

A seminar series with student presentation and a laboratory project related to current research.

Literature

current scientific literature, Atkins et al. Shriver & Atkins Inorganic Chemistry, Oxford University Press, or equivalent

Examination including compulsory elements

Project work, oral and written. Continuous assessment during the seminar series. Oral examination.
