Annotation -
The course focuses on the importance of transition metals for the construction and properties of molecules. It provides an overview of the approaches used to describe coordination compounds, deals with what properties of the metal and ligand are crucial for the formation of complexes and what determines their properties (reactivity, interaction with IR and UV-Vis radiation, magnetic behavior, biological activity).

Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

Use the basic coordination chemistry notions

Distinguish access CFT, LFT and MO theory, know their advantages and applicability limits

Explain the typical properties of coordination compounds using an appropriate model

Understand the primary literature and memoirs
