2017: Tuesday 25. of April 8.10-10 and Thursday 27. of April 10.15

Case study 3, cyanide as the ligand

The d-block metals: Study material: Chapter 21 (not sect 21.1, 21.2, - don't focus on solid state structures, but merely on metal ion salts and coordination compounds with simpler ligands, since we meet a lot of other chemisty in the Case-studies) and Chapter 22 (only sect 22.3 and 22.11 as an example of a group, the Nickel-group.
Notes M2plus; M3plus; d-block-fluoride; d-block-chloride; Spin pairing energy table

Some short introductions will be given to all of these (first row d-block) metals and much time will be spent on case studies.

Case study 7, penicillamin as the ligand

Next topic:
Group 17 - The halogens
Chapter 17 (17.1,17.2, 17.4, 17.5, 17.7 + table 17.3
"Notes" :
Some fluorides of s- and p-block elements.   
Chloro compounds of the p-block.
Some fluorides and fluoro complexes of the first period of the d-block.
Some chlorides and chloro complexes of the first period of the d-block.
Table 17.5
HX, aqueous solutions and azeotropes as a phenomenum (and for hydrochloric acid as en example)
Aqueous solutions of halogens and halides (ex. I3-)
Identification and quantification of halogens
17.8: oxides, ClO2 as an example of an oxide

A few questions:
- Phosphorpentafluoride is soluble in hydrogenfluoride. How could that be formulated in acid-base language?.
- What is the geometry of BrF4+? (Use VSEPR theory)What is VSEPR theory ? Consult section 2.8 . Aslo on the internet you may find a textbook-like outline on VSEPR with pictures and questions here
- What is the geometry of ClF4-? (Use VSEPR theory)
- End of chapter problem 17.25

Case study 8 halogens
