CHGN411/511 - Applied Radiochemistry

This course is designed for those who have a budding interest radiochemistry and its applications. A brief overview of radioactivity and general chemistry will be provided in the first three weeks of the course. Follow-on weeks will feature segments focusing on the radiochemistry in the nuclear fuel cycle, radioisotope production, nuclear forensics and the environment. 3 hours lecture, 3 semester hours.

CHGN341 - Inorganic Chemistry I

This course is the first formal introduction students have to the chemistry of the "rest of the periodic table." By the end of the course, the students should be able to articulate differences between molecular orbital theory, valence bond theory and crystal field theory. The main principles of group theory, solid state structures and d-block chemistry are introduced. Group theory is applied throughout the course to describe molecule and orbital symmetry and spectroscopy. Students should also have an understanding of electronic effects impacting d-block coordination chemistry. A quick overview is also provided regarding lanthanide and actinide chemistry with some dialogue regarding radioactivity.
