CommentPrerequisites: successful participation in 529-0132-00L "Inorganic Chemistry III: Organometallic Chemistry and Homogeneous Catalysis".


AbstractAdvanced organometallic chemistry, homogeneous catalysis and related heterogeneous processes.
Selected topics include: chiral metallocenes and their application in enantioselective reactions, Pd-catalyzed C-C bond forming reactions, olefin metathesis, alkane conversion (C-H ad C-C bond activation), C1 chemistry, processes inorganic and organic fluorine chemistry.
ObjectiveDevelopment of an extended understanding of the (organometallic) chemistry associated with homogeneous and heterogeneous catalytic processes
ContentAdvanced organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. Selected topics include: chiral metallocenes and their application in enantioselective reactions, Pd-catalyzed C-C bond forming reactions, C-H activation, olefin metathesis, inorganic and organic fluorine chemistry.
