KJE-3308 Metal-Organic Compounds in Organic Synthesis - 10 stp

The course is administrated by

Faculty of Science and Technology

Type of course

Theoretical and practical course. The course is available as a singular or elective course independent of study program, also to exchange students. The course is offered on condition that a minimum number of students register for the course. The course is given every second or third year.

Course contents

Organometallic chemistry is the chemistry of transition metals used in organic synthesis and is routinely used by synthetic chemists.

The course starts with the description of organometallic complexes in terms of electron configuration, bonding and structure. Reaction mechanisms and reactivity of complexes containing different transition metals and ligands are then introduced and applied in the analysis of complex synthetic transformations.

Application deadline

Applicants from Nordic countries: 1 June for the autumn semester and 1 December for the spring semester. Exchange students and Fulbright students: 1 October for the spring semester and 15 April for the autumn semester.
