CHEM 760/7600 - Organic Materials Synthesis

Semester: Spring 2024 Professor: D. Schipper | Discipline: Organic | Campus: Waterloo
Organic Materials Synthesis will familiarize students with modern techniques that are used to synthesize organic electronic materials (conjugated molecules and polymers). Methods to be introduced include Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions (Suzuki, Stille, Sonagashira etc.), other catalytic and stoichiometric techniques (Yamamoto, Kumada, Gilch etc.), oxidative polymerization (chemical and electrochemical) and C-H bond activation strategies. The methods will be discussed within the context ...
