Advanced experimentation in chemistry with an emphasis on chemical synthesis and the various spectroscopic and computational methods used to probe the physical properties of chemical systems. The course will focus on the synthesis of inorganic and organometallic complexes, the analysis of inorganic compounds by: optical, magnetic resonance, and vibrational spectroscopies, the use of catalysts in the synthesis of organic compounds, advanced separations, and modern computational chemistry. Laboratory, 6 hours per week. Prerequisite: CHEM-3321 and CHEM-3432
