529-0243-00LTransition Metal Catalysis: From Mechanisms to Applications Information
Only for Chemistry MSc, Programme Regulations 2005.
7 credits3GB. Morandi
AbstractDetailed discussion of selected modern transition metal catalyzed reactions from a synthetic and mechanistic viewpoint
ObjectiveUnderstanding and critical evaluation of current research in transition metal catalysis. Design of mechanistic experiments to elucidate reaction mechanisms. Synthetic relevance of transition metal catalysis. Students will also learn about writing an original research proposal during a workshop.
ContentDetailed discussion of selected modern transition metal catalyzed reactions from a synthetic and mechanistic viewpoint. Synthetic applications of these reactions. Introduction and application of tools for the elucidation of mechanisms. Selected examples of topics include: C-H activation, C-O activation, C-C activation, gold catalysis, redox active ligands, main group redox catalysis, frustrated Lewis pairs.
Lecture notesLecture slides will be provided online. A Handout summarizing important concepts in organometallic and physical organic chemistry will also be provided. Useful references and handouts will also be provided during the workshop.

Slides will be uploaded 1-2 days before each lecture on http://www.morandilab.com/teaching (password will be given during the first lecture or can be requested by email)
LiteraturePrimary literature and review articles will be cited during the course.

The following textbooks can provide useful support for the course:

- Anslyn and Dougherty, Modern Physical Organic Chemistry, 1st Ed., University Science Books.
- Crabtree R., The Organometallic Chemistry of the Transition Metals, John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
- Hartwig J., Organotransition Metal Chemistry: From Bonding to Catalysis, University Science Books.
- J. P. Collman, L. S. Hegedus, J. R. Norton, R. G. Finke, Principles and Applications of Organotransition Metal Chemistry.
Prerequisites / NoticeRequired level: Courses in organic and physical chemistry of the first and second year as well as ACIII

Special requirement: each participant will have to come up with an independent research proposal to be presented orally at the end of the semester. A dedicated workshop will be organized in the middle of the semester to introduce the students to proposal writing and presentation.
