With its emphasis on coordination chemistry but coverage of bioinorganic chemistry and instrumental analysis as well, the authors describe the history of early developments in inorganic chemistry and include five experiments with each topic, covering Werner's notion and the synthesis and analysis of cobalt ammine coordination compounds, molecular geometry and stability through solid and solution phase analysis, substitution reactions, electron transfer reactions, metals in medicine (including the synthesis and biological reactivity of a platinum anti-cancer drug), metals in environmental bioremediation and in molecular biology, and oxidation of a natural production by a catalyst.
6), possibly accounting for this distortion in molecular geometry.
These representations, along with the discourse and meaning-making activities of the chemistry community, have resulted in significant advances in the understanding of chemical constructs, such as molecular geometry, connectivity, aggregation, state, and concentration (Coppola, 1999).
This wasn't even on my radar screen, not even close,'' Day said Monday from his office at California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, where he holds a doctorate specializing in X-ray crystallography - the use of crystals to determine molecular geometry.
