List of Chemistry Notes
Only covers the topics I chose to study for - namely Synthesis, Intercalation, Ruddlesden-Popper Phases, Superconductors and Zeolites
Some very basic notes on Atomic Structure and Periodicity.
Mostly adapted from Prof Armstrong's Lecture Notes, with a few Tutorial Essays thrown in.
Info about HSAB Principle, Coordination Geometries, Isomerism and Complex Stability
Covers some of the descriptive chemistry of the p-Block, done by Group (12 to 18)
Covers some of the descriptive chemistry of each element in the Transition Metals section of the Periodic Table.
Notes on the basics of NMR in Inorganic Chemistry, I think mostly taken from the Primer. See Physical Notes for more about the theory.
General discussion of this, with a glossary, but not much specifics on the techniques (except EPR and Matrix Isolation)
Details on the basic types of mechanism and redox pathways, with information on how this can be detected using kinetic studies. Mostly taken from a variety of lecture notes.
Mostly Descriptive Chemistry, but discusses why the chemistry occurs as well. There is some more detail on Uranium at the end. Adapted from Dr Heyes' Lecture Notes
Brief Notes on Magnetism, I think from Dr Cox's lectures.
Notes on MO Diagrams and LCAO for simple molecular compounds and complexes. This is pretty much entirely a cut-down version of Dr Mountford's lecture handouts.
General discussion of the trends amongst the Non-Metals and reasons behind them, plus some comparisons between elements towards the end. Adapted from a variety of sources.
Some general characteristics and chemistry, followed by descriptive notes.
Covers the ionic model and lattice enthalpies (plus the Kapustinskii Equation), with some structures and thermodynamics towards the end.
Basically the lecture course delivered by a number of lecturers towards the end of third year. Good general revision material.
General level Solid State covering electronic properties, i.e. Band Theory, Types of Metals, Mott-Hubbard Insulators, Trends in Metals, Superconductors and special examples, then Defects and Ionic Conductivity. Little bit on Experimental Methods at the end.
Mostly first year material on structural types and predicting them, but some essays from 3rd year about Transition Metal cases are included.
Some basic notes on Acids and Bases and Redox Reactions (Frost Diagrams, Pourbaix Diagrams, etc).
Thorough notes on most aspects of Transition Metal Chemistry. Largely adapted from Prof Denning's lecture notes, with some extra bits thrown in.
Mostly an advanced topic, although there's some Symmetry and Group Theory notes in here which are useful for General.
X-Ray Diffraction Notes that cover both general and advanced level. Also includes notes on Neutron Diffraction, EXAFS, etc.
