A detailed look at transition metal organometallic chemistry. Structure and bonding. Ligands. Reactivity. Catalysis. Applications of organometallic complexes in organic synthesis and industrial catalysis.
You will be expected to have a general understanding of transition metal chemistry, as taught in Chem324.
Wikipedia has decent articles on organometallic chemistry, but the best web resource is probably still Rob Toreki's Organometallic Hypertextbook.
Grades and Examinations
The total percentage mark will be made up as follows for undergraduates (423) students:
Graduate (523) students will be graded using a different format:
The examinations will not necessarily be the same for 423 and 523 students but will be held at the same time. Midterms will be 50 minutes (both will be counted under all circumstances) and the final 3 hours. Due to Senate regulations limiting the percentage of the final grade that may be allotted to the Final examination, any missed midterms will have to be made up.
All dates are subject to change with due notice.
The university has a policy on academic integrity to which all students are expected to abide.
