Reactions based on the chemistry of transition metals play an important role both in the chemical industry and in the organic synthesis. This course is divided into two parts. In the first part the students familiarize themselves with basic principles of the chemistry of transition metals, with the reactions in coordination sphere and with chemical properties of common ligands. The second part deals with an application of this chemistry in some important industrial processes and especially in the organic synthesis.

Students will be able to:

distinguish basic types of reactions which occur in the coordination sphere of transition metals

understand the mechanisms of transition metals catalyzed reactions which are used in organic synthesis

propose synthesis of organic compounds using chemistry of transition metals
