Description

This course provides a theoretical and a practical introduction to inorganic chemistry. Fundamental aspects of inorganic chemistry relevant to pharmaceutical science are presented in the theory component of the module. The module develops the ability to carry out inorganic chemistry analytical techniques with confidence and with a high level of accuracy and precision

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Describe the basic concepts of inorganic chemistry including atomic number, atomic mass, atomic orbitals and electronegativity values

2.

Describe the concepts of molecular bonding including models such as MO theory and VSEPR

3.

Describe chemistry concepts related to acids, bases and ions in solution.

4.

Demonstrate understanding of special topics such as catalysis, coordination chemistry and/or electron transfer.

5.

Demonstrate ability to work safely in a chemical laboratory.

6.

Perform inorganic chemistry analytical techniques.

7.

Record data of analytical work and write concise experimental reports.

8.

Analyse experimental data and draw conclusions on validity of data.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

This module will be delivered full-time. This will include lectures and laboratory practicals augmented by independent learning and directed learning. This approach is expected to address student learning needs. Moodle will be used as a repository of educational resources and as a means of assessment (e.g. quizzes, uploading assignments and journals).

Module Assessment Strategies

This module is 15% continuous assessment, 50% practical and 35% final examination.

Continuous assessment will comprise regular summative tests to encourage engagement with the module, monitor progress and provide feedback.

Laboratory skills and report-writing ability will be assessed as part of the practical work performed during the module.

The student must reach an assigned gate in the final examination and must achieve 40% overall to pass the subject.

Self-assessment tests and other forms of formative assessment are provided to students to check their own progress towards achieving the learning outcomes of the module and to motivate learning.

Repeat Assessments

Repeat continuous assessment and/or final examination.

Now in its fifth edition, Housecroft & Sharpe's Inorganic Chemistry, continues to provide an engaging, clear and comprehensive introduction to core physical-inorganic principles. This widely respected and internationally renowned textbook introduces the descriptive chemistry of the elements and the role played by inorganic chemistry in our everyday lives. The stunning full-colour design has been further enhanced for this edition with an abundance of three-dimensional molecular and protein structures and photographs, bringing to life the world of inorganic chemistry. Updated with the latest research, this edition also includes coverage relating to the extended periodic table and new approaches to estimating lattice energies and to bonding classifications of organometallic compounds. A carefully developed pedagogical approach guides the reader through this fascinating subject with features designed to encourage thought and to help students consolidate their understanding and learn how to apply their understanding of key concepts within the real world. Features include: Thematic boxed sections with a focus on areas of Biology and Medicine, the Environment, Applications, and Theory engage students and ensure they gain a deep, practical and topical understanding A wide range of in-text self-study exercises including worked examples, reflective questions and end of chapter problems aid independent study Definition panels and end-of-chapter checklists provide students with excellent revision aids Striking visuals throughout the book have been carefully crafted to illustrate molecular and protein structures and to entice students further into the world of inorganic chemistry Inorganic Chemistry 5th edition is also accompanied by an extensive companion website, available at www.pearsoned.co.uk/housecroft . This features multiple choice questions and rotatable 3D molecular structures.
