Organometallic Chemistry 1 (F1089)

15 credits, Level 5

Spring teaching

This module focuses on the chemistry of organometallic compounds of the elements - that is molecular complexes containing metal-carbon bonds and/or metal-hydrogen bonds.

You will look at the principles which govern the synthesis, structure, bonding, and industrially important catalytic chemistry of this class of compounds, and the reaction mechanisms associated with the latter.
