Organometallics (CHEM 418)

Organometallic chemistry describes the chemistry compounds that contain a metal-carbon bond. In this course the student will be introduced to electron configurations in inorganic complexes (the 18-electron rule), types of o-bonded complexes typical of organometallic compounds, ligands used to modify the reactivity of metals, reaction mechanisms, pi-bonded complexes, catalysis, and physical methods of analysis. Prerequisite: CHEM314 - Inorganic Chemistry and Lab

CHEM418 is a 3 credit course.
