Vakcode WBLT013-05
Vaknaam Bioinorganic Chemistry
Niveau(s) bachelor
Voertaal Engels
Periode semester I a (Runs in week 1-3 and 7-9 with Practical Microbiology in week 4-6)

Uitgebreide vaknaam Bioinorganic Chemistry
Leerdoelen At the end of the course, the student is able to:

- Explain trends in the periodic table.
- Explain structures, trends in bond length/strength and other molecular properties by applying bonding theories.
- Explain the electronic structure of d-metal compounds and relate it to spectral and magnetic properties.
- Discuss coordination compounds and metals in general in a life science context.
Omschrijving The course Bioinorganic Chemistry provides a general introduction to inorganic chemistry, with special focus on the role of metals in a life science context. The first part of the course will cover central concepts in inorganic chemistry (e.g. atomic structure, chemical bonding, Lewis acid/base theory, coordination chemistry, d-block metals). The second part focuses on the role of (d-block) metals in a life science context (e.g. nitrogen fixation and oxygen activation).
