CHEM - 345. Bioinorganic Chemistry


2-3 credit(s)
This course describes the interdisciplinary field that unites inorganic chemistry and biochemistry by examining the various roles of metal ions in biological systems - from mechanistic to medicinal uses. It applies fundamental principles of inorganic chemistry (particularly transition metal coordination chemistry) to an understanding of the structure and function of biological macromolecules. Physical methods and instrumentation commonly employed by bioinorganic chemists are also discussed. Using a developed understanding of inorganic chemistry and biochemistry, literature papers on topics of current importance to the bioinorganic community will be discussed.

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 210  or permission of instructor.
Attribute: ARTS, CFN
