CHEM 429 - Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis (3)


An introduction to concepts in organometallic chemistry including synthesis, electron counting schemes, spectroscopic properties, common reaction mechanisms and nomenclature. The use of organometallic species in catalytic systems will be covered including specific catalytic systems, interpretation of catalytic cycles and topics of concern in polymer synthesis. The differences between homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts will be highlighted along with typical processes that involve heterogeneous catalysts. Prerequisites: CHEM 232, 233. Spring.
