Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis Laboratory Practice
In this practical course, students get experience in the field of advanced preparative and manipulation techniques like semi-micro syntheses in vacuum and inert atmosphere, the Schlenk technique, electro- and photochemical preparations, microwave assisted reactions, chemical vapour deposition. The studied chemical systems include – among others – transition metal catalysts, clusters, organometallic reagents and precursors.
The manual containing experimental procedures together with discussion and brief theory of reactions is available via the internet.
