Spring 2003       Advanced Inorganic Chemistry 333            Lycoming College

LYCOMING COLLEGE                                                                                                                                    advanced inorganic chemistry

CHEMISTRY 333, 2003                                                                                                                                                                                                      

 

 

DESCRIPTION:                          "A study of modern theories of atomic and molecular structure and their relationships to the chemistry of selected elements and their compounds."  The course is divided into four areas:

                                                              a)     Atomic Structure and properties, Ionic Bonding, and Solids  (Hour Exam I)

                                                              b)    Covalent Bonding, Molecular Shapes, and Symmetry  (Hour Exam II)

                                                              c)     Coordination Chemistry (d-Metal Complexes)  (Hour Exam III)

                                                              d)    Selected topics of solution and descriptive chemistry  (mini-exam before Final)

                                                     

CLASS HOURS:                         Lecture: MWF, 10:15 - 11:05 a.m.;   Lab: R 07:45 - 11:35 a.m.

 

Instructor:                           Dr. David A. Franz    Office: 321-4181    Home: 323-0301     E-mail: franz@lycoming.edu

 

OFFICE HOURS:                        MWF, 11:15 - 12:00 a.m.;   MF, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.;   or by appointment

 

TEXT:                                          Housecroft, C.E. and Sharpe, A.G. Inorganic Chemistry, Prentice Hall: New York, 2001  

                                                     

LAB POLICIES:                          Safety glasses and bound lab notebook required; no bare feet, sandals or shorts in lab.  Written lab reports will be due one week following completion of each experiment, with a late penalty of five points plus one point per day late.  Reports are done individually, even on experiments done by pairs.

 

EXAMS:                                      There will be three hour exams and a comprehensive final (ACS Standardized).

 

HOMEWORK:                           A regular schedule of assignments will be made and must be completed when due.  These assignments, as well as written lab reports, are considered take-home, open-book quizzes and will be graded.  Students may consult the instructor for hints, and are welcome to consult literature sources, but must do their own work.  Violations of this policy will be considered as cases of academic dishonesty (see next page).

 

GRADING SCHEME:                 300     Hour Exams                                                                         Extra Credit:  3 pts added for each

                                                      140     Final Exam (100 ACS, 40 Descriptive Chem)                  Colloquium attended, in excess

                                                      160     Lab Experiments (120) and Student Lecture (40) of class absences, max. of 21 pts.

                                                      200     Class, HW, Nomenclature Exam                                       Class: 3 pts @ deducted in excess

                                                      800     TOTAL                                                                                of 3 absences.

 

                                                      Letter grades will be assigned on the following basis:

100-90%  =  A

87-86%  =  B+

76-75%  =  C+

65-64%  =  D+

<55% =  F

  89-88%  =  A-

85-79%  =  B

74-68%  =  C

63-57%  =  D

 

 

78-77%  =  B-

67-66%  =  C-

56-55%  =  D-
