We will synthesize different classes of transition metal or lanthanide based inorganic compounds, such as coordination complexes, solid state compounds, and organometallic complexes, using modern synthetic techniques. We will characterize the chromophoric, fluorescent, and magnetic properties of these compounds using state of the art spectroscopic instrumentation, which yield insight into the electronic and chemical structure of compounds. Spectroscopic techniques include NMR, IR, UV-visible absorption, magnetic circular dichroism, fluorescence, and X-ray diffraction experiments. Experiments are described in the required text and additional handouts. This is a single semester, one-credit course.
