This unit is intended for all students majoring in chemistry along with those with interests in the physical sciences, biotechnology, medical and biomedical research, life sciences, earth sciences, Antarctic science, marine science, and pharmaceutical science areas. The content of this unit has also been structured so that it serves many other courses within the BSc. Students who would like to do this unit but have a timetable problem with either lectures or laboratory work should consult the Unit Coordinator.
This unit explores the application of contemporary organometallic chemistry to the study of catalysis and reaction processes. The organometallic chemistry topics will include bonding and structure, catalytic reactions, and applications in organic synthesis and industrial chemistry. Laboratory work will cover aspects of organometallic synthesis, catalytic reactions, and computational chemistry.
