Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to understand and explain principles of transition metals and their complexes application in synthesis. An advanced course of organic synthesis for students of chemistry.
  • Molecular orbitals of transition metal complexes (ability for bonding, ligand characters, pi-donor, pi-acceptor, d-pi-akceptor ligands), Active particles and catalytic cycles (variability of oxidative states and co-ordinative number, rule of 16/18 electrons). Formation of active particles-activation of substrates by coordination, by addition (oxidative, homolytic and heterolytic addition), elemental processes of coordinated ligands-migration and insertion, migration of coordinated ligands and other reactions, alpha-, beta-eliminations, reductive eliminations and other reactions terminate catalytic cycle).
  • Formation of single and duble C-C bonds, coupling reactions (dimerization of alkenes, cross coupling, alkyne syntheses, alkylation by palladium and similar catalyst complexes). Syntheses with application of sigma- and pi-arene complexes (character of coordination and reactivity of coordinated substrates), metathesis of alkenes, allenes.
  • Synthesis of carbocycles.Heterocycles synthesis.
  • Alkenes isomerization.
  • Direct inzertion of carbonyl.
  • Redox reactions, hydrogenation and reduction of multiple bond C-C, C-N, C-O, C-S, N-O, assymetric hydrogenation,hydrogenolysis, alkene oxidation, epoxidation, dehydrogenation etc. Stereochemistry of syntheses, chirality of catalysts.
