Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Valence (Theoretical chemistry); Chemical bonds; Electrons; Molecular orbitals
In class, we have used the Valence Bond (VB) approach to understand chemical
bonding. At the qualitative level, VB is relatively easy to use and does not require a deep
knowledge of quantum mechanics and group theory. The electron-dot formalism of...

Experiment consisting of preparing a series of standard solutions containing iron and solutions of metallic alloy samples, then measuring the absorption of light by the atoms of the element when the solutions are aspirated into a flame.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Homework; Molecular orbitals; Chemical bonds
Introduction: In class we applied molecular orbital theory to a few simple examples with the goal of understanding the nature of the chemical bond. The qualitative approach is complemented by numerical calculations and the interpretation of these...
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...

An annotated bibliography of Physical Chemistry, with links to sources of chemical data on the World Wide Web involving general information, fundamental constants, nuclear chemistry, quantum mechanics, spectroscopy, statistical mechanics,...
Handout providing a list of sources of data in the library. Specifically, it provides a list of the most useful
compilations of numerical data need for planning experiments and for the analysis of experimental results.
Homepage for Chemistry 51, Accelerated General Chemistry. It provides links to and information on the course description, handouts, problem sets, sample examinations, laboratory experiments, the syllabus, etc.
