CHEM 20
Introduction to Research in Inorganic Chemistry Winter 2022

Class Details

Students in this course will carry out an independent research project in collaboration with a member of the Department with expertise in inorganic chemistry. Representative projects include the synthesis and study of polymers to encapsulate heavy metals with an eye to environmental remediation and the synthesis of coordination complexes as models of enzymes and as catalysts for the oxidation of organic compounds. The interdisciplinary nature of the project will expose students to a range of inorganic and organic synthetic protocols and analytical and spectroscopic techniques for the characterization of new materials and the monitoring of catalysis. In addition to lab work, participants will engage in an exploration of careers in chemistry and a discussion of topics of interest to chemists, such as ethics and creating a diverse workforce.
