ChemS 220 Organometallic Chemistry



Systematic consideration of modern aspects of organometallic chemistry including main group and transition metal complexes. The structure and binding in organometallic compounds is covered.Particular emphasis is placed on applications of homogenous organometallic catalysis in polymer synthesis, industrial processes and synthetic organic chemistry. The course aims to cover current aspects of research in the field of organometallic chemistry. It is assumed that students taking this course are already familiar with general organometallic chemistry at the undergraduate level. The course materials can be divided into two (2) parts. We will cover topics relating to general organometallic chemistry to function as a refresher but with a practicing researcher’s bent and some special topics with focuses on catalysis and its applications.
