To explore the amazing breadth of inorganic chemistry extending far beyond the confines of this course you will write a short paper exploring an application (catalysis, biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, solid state....) of a randomly assigned transition metal based on a recent article in the professional chemical literature.

Your paper will focus on the transition metal and discuss the application in the context of the fundamentals of inorganic chemistry. This is an opportunity to explore inorganic chemistry in a direction of personal interest and use your newly acquired knowledge.
