Educational Resources

We provide educational resources to our global bioinorganic chemistry community and we wish to serve as an aggregator that provides to the public links to previously established educational resources that promote biological inorganic chemistry and special member resources such as lectures, flash cards and other materials that can be accessed only by SBIC members.

In early 2021, many members of our community contributed their lectures to this initiative, which we are highly grateful for. The lectures by Melissa Zastrow on the gut metallobiome and by Jennifer Bridwell-Rabb on chlorophyll biosynthesis are freely available below. For the remaining lectures log in to the members online area and find the link to 'Member Content' or follow this link to SBIC Educational Resources.

MPI Summer School: Methods in Molecular Energy Research: Theory and Spectroscopy

Since 2013, the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Energy Conversion organizes a Summer School "Methods in Molecular Energy Research: Theory and Spectroscopy" once a year, alternating between the three departments. The school aims at teaching students various research methods and at fostering exchange between students and scientists.

Frank Neese - Introduction to Quantum Chemical Methods

 

 Frank Neese - Ligand Field Theory

 

Frank Wennmohs - Introduction to ORCA program system

 

Eckhard Bill - Spin Hamiltonian Formalism for Transition Metal Complexes

 

Thorsten Glaser - Introduction to Magnetochemistry

 

Maurice van Gastel - EPR Spectroscopy

 

Eckhard Bill - Mössbauer Spectroscopy

 

Serena DeBeer - Introduction to X-ray Spectroscopy: mainly CAS and a bit of XES

 

Felix Tuczek - Optical Absorption Spectroscopy and MCD Spectroscopy

 

Frank Neese - Vibrational Spectroscopy
