Course Description

Practical Catalysis is a course comprising lectures and problem sessions designed to illustrate how state-of-the-art catalytic methods can be applied to practical issues in small molecule synthesis . The content will focus on problems and targets relevant to pharmaceutical and agrochemical interests . An emphasis will be placed on practical solutions. Topics covered will include: Pd and Cu catalysed C-C and C-X bond forming processes; Rh catalysed conjugate additions; metathesis as a practical tool; catalysis in heterocycle modification and synthesis; emerging areas in catalysis. Course Outline Introduction to Practical Catalysis Understanding the black box : Tools for Organometallic Chemistry Catalytic C-C bond Forming Processes for Organic Synthesis Pd and Cu catalysed C-X Bond Forming Processes Hydrogenation Metathesis as a Practical Tool for Synthesis The Catalytic Synthesis and Modification of Heterocycles Biocatalysis as a Tool for Organic Synthesis Organocatalysis Emerging Areas in Catalysis for Organic Synthesis Case Studies - Practical Applications of Catalysis in Industry Problem sessions
