CH 366C CH 366C. Advanced Inorganic Chemistry: Organometallics Catalysis. 3 Hours.
An in-depth and mostly chronological study of the evolution of organometallic and inorganic coordination chemistry, and its continued critical importance in a range of industrial processes. Covers a range of topical catalytic processes, paying particular attention to how chemical bonding and kinetics can be exploited to affect the relative rates of reaction. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Chemistry 366C and 368 (Topic: Advanced Inorganic Chemistry: Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis) may not both be counted. Prerequisite: Credit with a grade of at least C- in Chemistry 431.
