A New "Bottom-Up" Framework for Teaching Chemical Bonding  Tami Levy Nahum, Rachel Mamlok-Naaman, Avi Hofstein, and Leeor Kronik
This article presents a general framework for bonding that can be presented at different levels of sophistication depending on the student's level and needs. The pedagogical strategy for teaching this model is a "bottom-up" one, starting with basic principles and ending with specific properties.

The Electrochemical Synthesis of Transition-Metal Acetylacetonates  S. R. Long, S. R. Browning, and J. J. Lagowski
The electrochemical synthesis of transition-metal acetylacetonates can assist in the transformation of an entry-level laboratory course into a research-like environment where all members of a class are working on the same problem, but each student has a personal responsibility for the synthesis and characterization of a specific compound.

Interactive Pi Bonding Effects  William F. Coleman
This application demonstrates the effect of pi bonding on the one-electron ligand field splitting in an octahedral. By clicking on the appropriate buttons students can see how D changes when you move from ligands with no pi bonding capability to pi donor and pi acceptor ligands.

Photosystem II Oxygen-Evolving Complex  William F. Coleman
Both introductory texts and texts for upper-level inorganic chemistry courses are shifting the emphasis in their coverage of transition metal chemistry from classical Werner complexes to those that exhibit some form of catalytic activity. This is of particular importance to bioinorganic chemistry, a now mature area of the science, but one that is still underrepresented in the undergraduate curriculum. Derrick L. Howard, Arthur D. Tinoco, Gary W. Brudvig, John S. Vrettos, and Bertha Connie Allen address this issue in their paper Catalytic Oxygen Evolution by a Bioinorganic Model of the Photosystem II Oxygen-Evolving Complex by a dimanganese complex that is proposed as a model for the four-manganese center in Photosystem II. The featured molecules for May are the model compound in the proposed mechanism for oxygen production.
