### CHI565 - Chemistry & Light: from Electronic Structure to Sustainable Energy (2019-2020)

This course will focus on the study of inorganic complexes and compounds to understand the basic relationship between electronic structure and molecular spectroscopy. We will put those fundamental concepts in the view of modern energy challenges, such as the use of light to trigger reactions or for energy storage.

Content and Topics

• Electronic spectra
• Luminescence
• Photochemistry
• Light harvesting
• Lanthanides spectroscopy

Bibliography

• Miessler, G. L. et al. Inorganic Chemistry; 5th ed.; Prentice Hall, 2014.
• Shriver, D. F et al. Inorganic Chemistry; 6th ed.; Oxford University Press, 2014.
• Atkins, P. et al. Physical Chemistry; 11th ed.; Oxford University Press, 2018
• Cotton, S. Lanthanide and Actinide Chemistry; John Wiley & Sons, 2006
• Wardle, B. Principles and Applications of Photochemistry; John Wiley & Sons, 2009

Language course: English

Credits ECTS: 4
