List of Chemistry Notes
Only covers the topics I chose to study for - namely Synthesis, Intercalation, Ruddlesden-Popper Phases, Superconductors and Zeolites
Starts with basic revision of Statistical Mechanics, then moves on to 2-Level Systems, Equilibrium Constants, etc (the more common exam questions!)
Mostly adapted from Prof Armstrong's Lecture Notes, with a few Tutorial Essays thrown in.
Advanced Level Only. I didn't end up doing this topic, so they're actually just the lecture notes reproduced without editting, but may be useful to some!
Short notes specific to Electronic Spectroscopy, e.g. Selection Rules. Recommend the other Molecular Spectroscopy Notes first.
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)
Some great notes on this topic taken from some lecture notes from a few years before me.
Advanced Level Only - not too many mechanisms either as they're easy but I've covered most of the protection and conversion options and structure determination. Lots from the Primer, but filled in the bits it missed.
Based on lecture notes in Photochemistry. Bit short.
Theory behind NMR, and nature of Chemical Shifts and Spin Coupling. Moves on to Chemical Exchange and Relaxation Mechanisms.
Some general characteristics and chemistry, followed by descriptive notes.
Covers Protecting Groups (On and Off methods, although omitted mechanisms as they're very easy, and then moves onto some useful sugar transformations (although this doesn't often come up on Finals any more)
Concentrates on bimolecular reactions and Transition State Theory, and includes things like the Kinetic Isotope Effect and Temperature-dependence.
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.
Quite a bit of Advanced level content, although covers the basics early on.
Fairly brief notes on isotherms and rates of reactions at surfaces. Also some experimental methods at the end. Not my favourite topic!
Starts with the background to the approximations involved in this, then works through the Variation Principle and how it applies to a range of simple molecules. Finishes with Huckel Theory.
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.
