CHEM 4611 Structure and Bonding 3/0/3

Prerequisite: CHEM 3422 with a minimum grade of C and ( PHYS 1112 with a minimum grade of C or PHYS 2212 with a minimum grade of C )

Fundamental quantum mechanical principles are applied to atomic structure and the periodic properties of the elements. The structure and reactivity of ionic and molecular systems are qualitatively analyzed by using bonding models such as valence bond theory, group symmetry and molecular orbital theory. The Band Theory is used to investigate the insulating/conducting properties of solids.
