Catalysis is fundamental and essential to modern organic synthesis. This course will cover topics in transition metal catalysis, biocatalysis, photoredox catalysis, and electrosynthesis with a focus on reaction mechanism and synthetic applications. Topics of current interest are emphasized.Transition metal-based catalysts are invaluable in both organic and polymer synthesis. This course begins with an overview of organometallic chemistry and catalysis. Subsequent modules on catalytic synthesis of small molecules and polymers are then presented. Topics of current interest are emphasized.
