Course description and aims

[Summary of the lecture] This course covers the reaction chemistries of various transition metal complexes as well as NMR techniques revealing dynamic behavior of transition metal complexes. This course also briefly covers the close relationship of organometallic chemistry with heterogeneous catalysis.
[Aim of the lecture] Organometallic chemistry of transition metals is the relatively new field of chemistry, which has been started in the middle of 20 century, and this lies at the interface between classical organic and inorganic chemistry. Organometallic chemistry is useful for interpreting not only the chemistry on a metal surface, but also biochemistry as well as material science. This course focuses on the fundamental chemistry of transition metal complexes, which is essential for the development of modern chemistry, based on the reaction chemistry of organometallic complexes.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Explain oxidative addition and reductive elimination.
2) Explain insertion and β-elimination.
3) Explain the methods for proving the dynamic property of transition metal complexes by using NMR techniques.
4) Explain the property of alkylidene complexes and metathesis reactions.
5) Explain the relationship of organometallic chemistry with the chemistry on a metal surface.

Class flow

This lecture will proceeds in the following order: (1) elementary reaction steps performed on a transition metal center, (2) NMR techniques revealing dynamic behavior of transition metal complexes, (3) Intimate relationship of organometallic chemistry with reactions performed on a metal surface. In the last day, final examination is set to assess the level of understanding.
