Course description and aims

[Summary of the lecture] In this lecture, "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 the application to organic synthesis in the organometallic catalyst chemistry, will be explained.
[Aim of the lecture] The organometallic catalysis chemistry is extremely important in not only laboratory organic synthesis but also industrial organic synthesis. In this lecture, various catalyses are classified and explained by the reaction mechanism. In addition, the development of asymmetric variants and application of these catalyses to the industrial synthesis of organic fine chemicals will also be introduced. Finally, students acquire the ability to apply organometallic catalysis to organic synthesis.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students acquire the following ability:
(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.

Class flow

This lecture 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 application of these catalyses to the industrial synthesis of organic fine chemicals will also be introduced. In the last day, practice problems and interpretation of them will be carried out to confirm the level of understanding.
