[Summary of the course] This lecture will focus the chemistry of coordination compounds, in particular transition metal complexes, and organic supramolecular compounds. Principles, application and recent topics of those compounds will be described.
[Aim of the course] This lecture facilitates the students’ understandings about structure and geometry of transition metal complexes, d-orbitals of transition metals, bond theories, and application of the coordination compounds, and fundamental properties and application of organic supramolecular compounds.
At the end of this lecture, students will be able to (1) explain the coordinate bond, (2) explain the structure and reactivity of transition metal complexes, (3) explain the intermolecular interactions, and (4) design the supramolecular compounds.
Transition metal complex, Ligand, Coordinate bond, functional coordination compound, Supramolecular compound
