Advanced Techniques of Synthesis and Analysis

a 12 units (1-9-2); b 12 units (1-9-2)    |  first, second terms
Prerequisites: Ch 4 ab. Ch 102 strongly recommended for Ch 5 b.

Modern synthetic chemistry. Specific experiments may change from year to year. Ch 5 a focuses on experiments illustrating the multistep syntheses of natural products. Ch 5 b focuses on the synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of coordination and organometallic complexes and their applications in organic and electrochemical catalysis. Methodology will include advanced techniques of synthesis and instrumental characterization. Terms may be taken independently.

Instructors: Agapie (b), Nelson (a)
