Chemistry of f elements

CH-427

Lecturer(s) :

Mazzanti Marinella

Language:

English

Summary

The course will provide a synopsis of the chemistry of f elements (lanthanides and actinides) covering structure, bonding, redox and spectroscopic properties and reactivity. The coordination and organometallic chemistry of these ions will be discussed with an overview of their main applications.

Content

- Definition and origins

- Basic properties

- Spectroscopic properties and luminescence

- Magnetic properties

- Coordination chemistry

-Organometallic Chemistry

-Application of Gd in Magnetic Resonance Imaging

-Application of Lanthanide Luminescent properties

-Applications of lanthanides in catalysis and organic synthesis

-Application of actinides: from nuclear industry and environmental concerns to small molecule activation and molecular magnets
