4 cr. (3-0-3)
Offered: Winter
Prerequisite: CH 111, CH112, CH215, CH321, CH322 (or CH220 may be substituted for CH321 and CH322), and CH341.

Comparative study of the chemical elements and their compounds with emphasis on periodic relations, principles of structure and bonding, kinetics of reactions and spectral and thermodynamic properties. Topics include complex ions, defect crystals, electron deficient compounds, organometallic and bio-inorganic chemistry. A variety of inorganic compounds are prepared and studied.
