CH-427 / 2 crédits

Enseignant: Mazzanti Marinella

Langue: Anglais


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

Keywords

coordination chemistry-organometallic chemistry-luminescence-magnetism-MRI contrast agents-lanthanides-actinides-small molecule activation

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

Coordination chemistry; Organometallic chemistry

Important concepts to start the course

Basic principles of coordination chemistry (geometries, bonding , hard-soft theory, basic crystal field theory) knowledge of simple ligands

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Recall the most important geometries and oxidation states of f elements
  • Recall the most important applications of f elements
  • Predict stabilities of compounds with respect to ligand dissociation, hydrolysis, oxidation and disproportionation
  • Predict reactivity of organometallic compounds
  • Discuss spectroscopic and magnetic properties
  • Categorize the different reactions of organometallic compounds
  • Predict reaction pathways
  • Design coordination compounds with specific properties
