This Module will provide insights into the specific roles of metals and ligands in the broad field of coordination chemistry. Specific areas to be discussed include the coordination and organometallic chemistry of transition metals, inorganic kinetics and principles of nuclear chemistry. The practicals related to the topics dealt with within the course are included in the laboratory-based Module CH334 - Experimental Chemistry II (see relevant module description).

Learning Outcomes
1. recognize the basic principles of radioactivity and nuclear chemistry, to include radioactive decays, the interaction of radiations with matter, nuclear reactions and common applications of radioisotopes
2. explain the bonding and structural features of transition metal coordination compounds based on the Crystal Field Theory (CFT) and the Molecular Orbitals (MOs) model
3. predict the spectroscopic properties of transition metal coordination compounds using theoretical models
4. describe the structure, bonding and reactivity of organometallic complexes of d-block elements
5. classify the types of organometallic complexes on the basis of the coordinated ligands
6. illustrate the catalytic activity of selected organometallic complexes and draw the associated mechanisms of reaction
7. explain the structure, bonding and reactivity of transition metals in the various oxidation states
8. discuss in detail the mechanisms of dissociative, associative, interchange, ligand substitution and electron transfer reactions of selected transition metals
