[Summary of the course] In this course, "reactions via allyl metal complexes (isomerization and allylic substitution reactions)", "reactions via carbene complexes (cyclopropanation and metathesis reactions)", "reactions via metallacycles (cycloaddition and cycloisomerization reactions)", and "reactions via electrophilic activation of unsaturated bonds (functionalization reactions of alkenes and alkynes)", which are particularly important for applications to organic synthesis in the organometallic catalyst chemistry, will be explained.
[Aim of the course] The organometallic catalysis chemistry is extremely important in not only laboratory organic synthesis but also industrial organic synthesis. In this course, various kinds of catalysis are classified and explained by the reaction mechanism. In addition, the development of asymmetric variants and applications of these various kinds of catalysis to the industrial synthesis of organic fine chemicals will also be introduced. Finally, students acquire the ability to apply organometallic catalysis to organic synthesis.
Students will acquire the following abilities by taking this course:
(1) Ability to explain "reactions via allyl metal complexes ".
(2) Ability to explain "reactions via carbene complexes".
(3) Ability to explain "reactions via metallacycles".
(4) Ability to explain "reactions via electrophilic activation of unsaturated bonds".
(5) Ability to apply organometallic catalysis (1)-(4) to organic synthesis.

|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
This course will proceed in the following order: "reactions via allyl metal complexes", "reactions via carbene complexes", "reactions via metallacycles", and "reactions via electrophilic activation of unsaturated bonds". In addition, the development of asymmetric variants and applications of these kinds of catalysis to the industrial synthesis of organic fine chemicals will also be introduced. In the last day, exercise problems and interpretation of them will be carried out to check the level of understanding.
