  • Historical development of coordination chemistry
  • Structures and nomenclature rules
  • Chemical bonds in transition metal coordination compounds
  • Stability of transition metal compounds
  • Characteristic reactions
  • Coordination polymers / metal-organic frameworks
  • Cluster compounds
  • Functional materials
  • Bioinorganic chemistry
  • Coordination compounds in medical applications
Acquired skills and knowledge:

  • The students shall acquire knowledge about concepts of chemical bonding in coordination chemistry (main emphasis: d-block transition metal compounds)
  • Broaden their capabilities to interpret UV/vis absorption spectra and to predict stability and reactivity of coordination compounds
  • Learn how to transfer concepts of coordination chemistry onto topics of materials sciences.

Vorkenntnisse The lecture course is based on the courses Chemistry I and Chemistry II.
