Course description and aims

Fundamental aspects of organotransition metal compounds will be described first, and then application to synthetic organic reactions using these organometallic compounds will be presented. Initially, various aspects of ligands such as carbonyl ligand and phosphine ligands will be discussed. Then basic reactions of transition metal compounds will be shown, and finally application to various kinds of synthetic reactions such as coupling reaction, metathesis reaction, etc. will be presented. Students can obtain basic knowledge of transition metal mediated or catalyzed organic reactions.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to acquire basic knowledge of organotransition metal chemistry with emphasis on the application to synthetic organic reactions.
