Upon completion of this subject, students should comprehend the concept of coordination for bonding and metal-ion reactivity, cluster molecules, organometallic species and metal-ion containing biomolecules. They should gain knowledge about the chemical processes occurring at the metal ion centre in catalytic processes ranging from synthetic and technological applications to biologically important enzymatic processes (for example photosynthesis, nitrogen fixation and fuel cells).
|Objectives:||Refer to Overview.|
Three to four short tests each of duration less than 1 hour conducted on-line during the semester using the learning management system (LMS) for a total of 20%, one 1-hour exam at the end of semester 1 and one 90-min exam at the end of semester 2 (80% for both written exams).
