This module will explore the application of various spectroscopic techniques (e.g. absorption, emission, CD, K- and L-edge excitations) to transition metal metal complexes.

Intended learning outcomes

  • Show an increased knowledge and understanding of the electronic structure of Metal Complexes
  • Show an increrased knowledge and understanding of various spectroscopic techniques for the elucidation of the electronic structure of metal complexes (absorption, emission, vibronic structure, CD, MCD)
  • application of symmetry to the interpretation of various spectroscopic techniques in order to determine the structure of, for example, metal complexes.

Generic skills

  • Advanced problem-solving and critical thinking skills
  • An ability to evaluate the professional literature
  • An understanding of the changing knowledge base
  • An capacity to apply concepts developed in one area to a different context
  • The ability to use conceptual models to rationalize experimental observations
