2. Pre-Requisites

It is recommended that you have completed and approved the subject of Inorganic Chemistry

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

This subject is part of the subject Inorganic Compounds along with the subject Inorganic Chemistry of the Solid State that is taught in the second semester within the Modules of Chemistry.

The course is the basis for understanding inorganic compounds with molecular structures such as coordination compounds and organometallic compounds. These compounds are of special importance for the understanding of many catalytic processes of industrial interest where they act as catalysts such as olefin metathesis processes, hydrogenation of unsaturated substrates, carbonylation... In addition, the pharmaceutical industry and a molecule of special importance for living beings. Alive are compounds of this type such as hemoglobin, chlorophyll... This warns us of the importance of the subject for the formation of a Chemist, since most chemical reactions involve inorganic molecular compounds.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Final test 70.00% 80.00% 70% corresponds to the exams carried out in the partial and final test, that is, to the grade obtained in these tests
Laboratory sessions 20.00% 20.00% Continuous evaluation through the monitoring of the acquisition of practical knowledge (laboratory) and the evaluation of the laboratory notebook that will include the answers to different questions raised.
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 10.00% 0.00% Resolution of case studies in the classroom, demonstrating the acquisition of the corresponding competences. It will be added to the first section
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    Final numerical rating from 0 to 10 depending on current legislation.
    The final qualification will be the result of continuous evaluation through the monitoring of acquisition of theoretical and practical knowledge
    demonstrate the acquisition of the skills. At the end of the first part of the subject (Coordination Chemistry) a progress test will be carried out, which if it is passed will serve as part of the note of the final exam.
    The laboratory practices are compulsory and to pass the course the final grade for the practices must be greater than or equal to 5 points out of 10.
    The final rating of the subject will be calculated as a result of the following actions:
    (a) final examination (70% ), (b) laboratory session (20% ) and (c) resolution of case studies in the classroom (10% ).
    The subject cannot be passed if the laboratory sessions has not been completed and passed and if it does not pass the final exam
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Final numerical rating from 0 to 10 depending on current legislation.
    The final rating shall be the result of an assessment demonstrating the acquisition of the relevant skills.
    The laboratory practices are compulsory and to pass the course the final grade for the practices must be greater than or equal to 5 points out of 10.
    The final grade of the subject will be calculated as a result of the following actions:
    final evaluation (80% ) y (b) conducting (laboratory) (20% ).
    The subject cannot be approved if the laboratory classes has not been completed and passed and if it does not pass the final evaluation.
