Introduction to Organometallic Chemistry

Course Description

This research line focuses on the study of Organometallic Chemistry, either on its fundamental or its applied sides. According to a classic definition, Organometallic Chemistry studies the synthesis, the structure and the reactivity of molecular compounds of metallic elements that contain at least one direct metal-carbon bond. The term “metal”usually assumes the broadest meaning, embracing not only the classic metallic elements (alkaline, alkaline-earth and d and f transition elements), but also main group “metalloids”, that is, most elements of the Periodic table with the exception of the lighter members of groups 14 –16, halogens and noble gases. Therefore, this discipline comprises a very broad field, embracing a large part of Molecular Inorganic Chemistry. At the IIQ, we concentrate on studies involving elements from the d transition series, but in recent years important contributions have been made to organo-main group chemistry as well.

Course Objective

This course deals with structure, bonding and reactivity of organometallic compounds: compounds that feature a metal carbon bond
