Inorganic Chemistry

This course explores inorganic chemistry, a division of chemistry that studies metals, their compounds, and their reactivity. Metal atoms can be bound to other metal atoms in alloys or metal clusters, to nonmetal elements in crystalline rocks, or to small organic molecules, such as a cyclopentadienyl anion in ferrocene. These metal atoms can also be part of large biological molecules, as in the case of iron in hemoglobin (oxygen-carrier protein in the blood). This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Chemistry 107)
