Unformatted text preview: Inorg an ic I Fina l E xa m C heck list Spring 2010 A rran g em en t of the list: elem en t na m es; fo llo w e d b y to p ic s a rra n g e d b y te x tb o o k c h a p te r, w ith som e out-of-text topics included; lab items follow E lem ent N am es - learn the names of the lanthanides; names for the elements in the remainder of the periodic table, which have been learned earlier, will also be covered. Names of elements 104 and above will count as extra credit. This does not include three-character placeholder names such as Uub. F undam entals (C hapter 9 ) Effective nuclear charge; basis of Slater’s Rules (i.e. why the rules are as they are, rather than the mechanics of using them to calculate effective nuclear charge) Atomic radii - trends and their basis Ionization energy - trends and anomalies Electron affinity - trends and anomalies Electronegativity - trends Diagonal effect - where it occurs and why Inert-pair effect - causes of it; specific examples MO diagrams of simple diatomic molecules or ions (e.g. N2, O2, O2+, etc.); analogy of MO’s of diborane and allyl cation ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------additional and important topic: hard/soft acid base theory (some background in addition to inclass coverage is in section 6.2 in the textbook) additional and important topic: oxidation-reduction reactions - how to balance ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- C hapter 1 0 - H ydrogen & Its C om pounds preparative reactions; synthesis gas; water gas (radiochemistry - omit) properties of molecular covalent hydrides trends in acidity, bond strength, thermodynamic stability, boiling points, along with explanations polymeric covalent hydrides ionic hydrides metallic hydrides C hapter 1 1 - O xygen & W ater oxygen isotopes combustion reactions water and ice - structures Trouton’s Rule and deviations from it (note: this topic is not specifically covered in the textbook) solubility rules oxides basic, amphoteric, acidic, neutral acid anhydrides structures of molecular oxides oxoacids - factors that control acidity; nomenclature hydroacids (largely covered in the binary hydride material) ozone - structure O2 - MO description O2 + , O2 - , O2 2 know how these relate to the MO description of O2 atmospheric chemistry - mechanisms of ozone depletion and of the greenhouse effect C hapter 2 N om enclature of C oordination C om pounds know the nomenclature for coordination compounds that contain one metal center; bimetallic/bridged compounds will not be covered C hapter 3 S tereochem istry of C oordination C om pounds chirality in octahedral and tetrahedral systems (including the system that you worked with in lab) cis/trans and mer/fac isomerism in octahedral systems cis/trans isomerism in square planar systems Berry pseudorotation linkage isomerism coordination isomerism C hapter 4 B onding in C oordination C om plexes d orbitals and their nature qualitative understanding of the general MO diagram for an octahedral complex ligand field splitting of d orbitals octahedral, square planar, tetrahedral (also tetragonal distortion of octahedral systems, and Jahn-Teller effect) differences among the different splittings; relative magnitudes of octahedral and tetrahedral splittings, and reasons for the differences d —> d transitions and the colors of coordination complexes crystal field stabilization energy (CFSE) - how to evaluate it for various spin systems; factors affecting CFSE high-spin and low-spin complexes spectrochemical series - trends and the reasons for the trends back-bonding magnetic susceptibility hard/soft acid base theory (again) C hapter 5 R ates a nd M echanism s o f S ubstitution of C oordination C om plexes first-order and second-order rate laws lability/inertness in coordination complexes - definition and reasons mechanistic continuum: associative (A)...dissociative (D) evidence for predominance of D-type mechanisms in substitution reactions of octahedral coordination complexes - be able to explain how data sets from specific types of experiments that support this electron-transfer reactions - outer-sphere and inner-sphere; experimental evidence for these substitution reactions of square planar complexes mechanism trans-directing series and the properties that give rise to it C h a p ter 1 2 - A lka li M eta ls an d E lectro ch em istry alkali metal physical properties alkali metal reactions and compounds, including nomenclature electrochemical series relationship of ￿G°, Keq, and electrochemical potential voltaic cells - design (including appropriate materials, based on given half-reactions), balanced cell reaction, direction of spontaneity, direction of electron flow, nature of standard conditions electrolytic cells - fundamental thermodynamic difference from voltaic cells L a b Ite ms Know how to: calculate the percent yield, based on the limiting reagent balance the preparative reactions that you carried out interpret the major features of visible and IR spectra interpret the various NMR spectra, including 1H, 13C, and 19F, including coupling constants ...
