This course provides a general introduction to both theoretical and practical aspects of advanced inorganic chemistry. The principles of quantum theory and symmetry are explained and then explored to account for the electronic and geometric structure of atoms and molecules. These concepts are then expanded further to include the study of such diverse areas as transition metals, organometallic chemistry and bioinorganic chemistry. The relevance of much of this chemistry to the world around us is highlighted with real examples of inorganic chemistry in action.
