Chemistry-Study and teaching; Chemical bonds; Transition metals; Molecular orbitals
Introduction. The purpose of this handout is to provide a simple model for the bonding in transition-metal complexes as a framework for understanding and interpreting the most important properties of these complexes. We shall deal mostly with the...
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Voltammetry; Electrochemistry; Solution (Chemistry)
Experiment with the goal of gaining an understanding of anodic stripping voltammetry and an understanding of the factors involved in performing quantitative analytical determinations, through the determinations of amounts of copper.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Stoichiometry; Chemical equilibrium
Introduction. Part II of the handout will apply the approach introduced in Part I to acid-base chemistry. We shall focus on two cases where the application of stoichiometry leads to great simplifications: strong acids which are essentially 100%...
