CHE 375 Inorganic Chemistry Course Outline The aim of the course is to provide a basic understanding of the chemistry of all elements. The course is structured into three stages: We will first cover a broad range of fundamental and practical aspects of the chemistry of the elements, then discuss the basic theories required to rationalize and categorize the chemical behavior of the elements, and finally focus on selected advanced topics. Chemistry of the main group elements Element groups: Hydrogen, alkali metals to halides and noble gases Element rows: First and second period versus heavier elements Chemistry of the transition metals, the lanthanide elements, and the actinide elements
