Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the electronic structure of organometallic compounds (transition metals), reactivity and stability based on MO-theory, mechanistic aspects: substitution reactions, oxidative addition reactions (e.g., H-H-, C-H-, C-Si- and C-C bond activation), reductive elimination, insertions, eliminations (alpha-, beta- and gamma-eliminations, decarbonylations, decarboxylations), sigma-bond metathesis, reaction of coordinated ligands (nucleophilic and electrophilic additions and abstractions), metallacycles, mechanistic aspects of homogeneous catalysis relevant to industrial processes (olefin hydrogenation and isomerization, hydroformylation, Wacker process, Monsanto acetic acid process, hydrosilation, C-C cross coupling reactions with Fe, Ru, Ni, and Pd complexes), stoichiometric and catalytic reactions with carbene and carbyne complexes (Tebbe reaction, olefin and alkyne metathesis), stoichiometric metal-assisted reactions, physical methods in organometallic chemistry based on NMR spectroscopy (bonding of coordinated ligands, NMR of heteronucleii, static and dynamic NMR measurements, isotope effects, T1 relaxation time measurements)
