CHEM 760/7600 - Organometallic Reagents in Organic Synthesis

Semester: Spring 2021 Professor: W. Tam | Discipline: Organic | Campus: Guelph
The use of transition metals in organic synthesis has increased dramatically in the last two decades. Transition metal catalysts provide new opportunities for highly selective reactions that are not achievable by traditional synthetic methods. Many compounds or molecular frameworks that were impossible to make two decades ago could now be synthesized efficiently by the use of transition metal catalysts. The following topics will be covered in this course: Basic Concepts in Organometallic ...
