Description: Aims:
To provide experience in synthetic inorganic chemistry and introduce a range of experimental techniques.

Learning Outcomes:
After studying this Unit, students should be able to:
* Perform syntheses of coordination and organometallic compounds.
* Analyse compounds using a range of physical methods.
* Deduce structural information from physical methods of analysis.
* Write a clear and concise account of the experimental work undertaken and the deductions made from it.

Skills:
Practical skills (F, T, A), report writing (F, A), data analysis (F, A).

Content:
The experiments have been designed to illustrate some of the important features of coordination and organometallic chemistry. Compounds will be prepared and information obtained from a number of physical methods including IR spectroscopy, NMR, UV/visible spectroscopy, atomic absorption and measurement of magnetic moment. Experiments illustrating specific techniques such as column chromatography and inert atmosphere chemistry will also be performed.
