Unformatted text preview: CHEM 216 Honors Freshman Chemistry: Chemical Bonding and the Electron 4 credits M W F 11:15-12:05 Stephen Lee (51137), (lecture) John Terry (ihtl), (laboratory), Emily Volpe (ecvS), Robert Berger (rfb26), Amanda Bowman (acb49), Adrian So (as454), Tian Chen (tc227), Allison Chin (ac375), Matt Chambers (mbc36), and Liane Slaughter (15329) (TA's) The goal of our course is to present a unified theory of the chemical bond of both covalent and ionic compounds in both organic and inorganic chemistry. This theory will require exposure to quantum mechanics and quantum chemistry. 1. BASICS OF ATOMIC AND MOLECULAR ORBITALS lecture 1: electrons and atoms lecture 2: Aufbau principle and the shapes of atomic orbitals lecture 3: radial fimctions and overtones lecture 4: drum modes lecture S: diatomic molecular orbitals (MOS) lecture 6: four general rules for M0 construction lecture 7: magnetism, N2, 02 and HF lecture 8 complex numbers and waves lecture 10: wave number, momentum and the uncertainty principle II. QUANTUM THEORY lecture 13: diffraction lecture 813: probability amplitudes and diffraction lecture 14: polarizing screens and matrices lecture 15: measurements as matrices; states as vectors lecture 16: measurements and states for polarizing screen experiments lecture 17: polarizing screens and destructive interference lecture E17: polarizing screens and quantum (matrix) mechanics lecture N18: fundamental rules of quantum mechanics lecture 13: the laws of quantum (matrix) mechanics lecture 19: H2 MO diagram using matrix mechanics lecture 20: N2 M0 diagram using matrix mechanics lecture 21 : HF MO diagram using matrix mechanics lecture 22: rules 1-3 (see lecture 6) for M0 theory from matrix mechanics lecture 23: rule 4 of MO theory lecture 24: butadiene and benzene III. ORGANIC AND INORGANIC CHEMISTRY lecture 25: electrophiles, nucleophiles and frontier orbitals lecture 26: electron donating and electron withdrawing groups lecture 27: nitration and aromatic electrophilic substitution lecture 29: naphthalene and electrophilic substitution lecture 3 ]: Diels—Alder reaction lecture 32: VSEPR and Walsh diagrams lecture 33: Lewis acids and bases from an M0 viewpoint lecture 34: hypervalent systems lecture 36: transition metal coordination compounds lecture 37: Cr(CO)6 lecture 38: high spin, low spin, 0 donors and It acceptors IV. IONIC BONDING, THE SOLID STATE AND LOCALIZED ORBITALS lecture S39: localized orbitals lecture 40: bands and localization lecture 4]: heavy main group elements and diamond lecture 42: electron counts and metals vs. insulators lecture 43: ionic compounds lecture 44: hard vs. soft and localized orbitals for organic chemistry lecture 45: carbocations, carbanions, electron donating and withdrawing groups lecture 46 electrophilic addition to alkenes To aid you in mastering the lecture material, the course will have weekly problem sets and a weekly problem session (time to be determined). Also copies of the lecture notes with attached problem sets and old examinations (please note the lecture numbering system outlined in the syllabus above is based on these notes) are available both at the campus store and on the web in Discussion Board. ‘ We will assign study groups for the homework problems. Study groups will hand in homework assignments together. TA's will assign study groups at your first or second lab period. There are no really good textbooks which follow the lecture material for this course. For this reason, textbooks for the course are optional. A freshman textbook such as the one you used in Chem 215 or 207 will be helpful for some portions of the course. A book on molecular orbital theory: “An Introduction to Molecular Orbital Theory" by Jean and Volatron will be available on reserve. This book is the closest match which we know of to the central portions of this course. The hand written lecture notes will be among the most useful tools in studying for the course. We strongly encourage students to read the notes PRIOR to the actual lecture. Any questions about the lecture can be posted on Discussion Board. Scientific errors in the lecture notes can also be recorded there. Extra credit of l or 2 points for errors or thought provoking questions will be given (EXTRA CREDIT GIVEN ONLY IF THE COMMENTS/QUESTIONS ARE PLACED ON DISCUSSION BOARD BEFORE THE PERTINENT LECTURE.) We believe your questions are one of the most important elements of this course. Your questions should be a real aid in making the lecture material easier to understand. Questions will be welcomed throughout the lectures. It has been our experience that there. are almost never too many questions, but quite often there are too few! Besides asking questions in class, please use Discussion Board to share with Professor Lee any substantive chemistry questions. He will try to answer questions in the following class, (not by Discussion Board). Grading scheme: the two prelim exams, laboratory, and problem sets will all be given equal weight. The final exam will have a double weight. In calculating the final grade, the lowest of the above numerical scores will be dropped. If the final is the lowest numerical score then, the final exam will be counted with a single rather than a double weight. S. Lee's office hours will be after the weekly problem session and Friday after class noon to 1 PM. Prof. . Lee's office is ST Olin 162, his phone number is 5—4727. John Terry's office hour is Thursday 2-3 PM and by appointment. There are also many office hours with the TA's in the course. We hope you have an intellectually challenging and profitable semester. Prelims: Tuesday, Feb 2f27v 7:00 - 8:30 pm; Thursday, 4/5 — 7:00 - 8:30 pm. Final: Wednesday, 5/9 — 7:00 pm. - 9:30 pm. 10 11 12 13 14 Spring 2007 Chemist_ry 216 Lab Schedule Qfiej 1 / 22-26 1 / 29~2 / 2 2/ 5—9 2/12—16 2/19-23 2/26-3/2 3/5-9 3 / 12-16 Experiment Check-In; Optical Spectroscopy Particle in a Box Preparation of a Superconducting Material Begin Determination of the Stoichiometry of a Potassium Iron Oxalate Compound Potassium Iron Oxalate; Test Superconductor Potassium Iron Oxalate Potassium Iron Oxalate Molecular Symmetry and Isomers » DI- » » I9 SPRINGRECESS (1 « « 14 14 3 / 26-30 4/ 2-6 4/ 9-13 4/ 11920 4/ 23—27 4/30-5/4 Solid-State: Structure and Properties Solid-State Solid-State; X-Ray Analysis of a Solid Begin Synthesis and Analysis of Co(III) Ammine Complexes; Determination of Spectrochemical Series Synthesis and Analysis of Co(III) Ammine Complexes Check out. ...
