Module overview

This module will build on the principles of Transition Metal chemistry covered in Part 1.

Through developing a molecular orbital approach, you will be taken from the basics of ligand interactions and binding modes to understanding a transition metal's role in catalysis. You will also deepen your understanding of spectroscopy, and how chemists can use techniques to predict spectroscopic properties of transition metal complexes.
