2 Chem 104A, UC, Berkeley Chemistry 104A Inorganic Chemistry An introduction to inorganic chemistry Topics covered will include: Atomic structures, periodic trends, Symmetry and group theory, Molecular orbital theory, molecular structure, Inorganic solids & band theory Completion of a general chemistry sequence (chemistry 1B, 3A or 4B) is prerequisite. Chem 104A, UC, Berkeley Chemistry 104A Inorganic Chemistry: Textbook Miessler, G. L., Tarr, D. A. Inorganic Chemistry, 3rd edition , Prentice Hall, Inc., New Jersey DeKock and Gray, Chemical Structure and Bonding , 2 nd Ed ., University Science Books, 1989 Optional (But recommended) Vincent, Molecular Symmetry and Group Theory, Wiley, 2001. Important: The course material, and certainly what you will be responsible for on the exams, will be defined in lecture and based mainly on the class notes. Therefore, attendance in class is a key to success! The paperback book by Vincent is a valuable tool for learning about symmetry and group theory in chemistry. In addition, part of the course (in particular MO theory) will be based on material in the book by DeKock and Gray.
