Transition Metal Organometallics in Catalysis and Biology
The course would cover application aspects of organometallic compounds in industrial processes with particular emphasis on various types of polymerization reactions that have had tremendous impact on society at large. The course would also highlight the importance of organometallic chemistry in biology in the form of bioorganometallic chemistry. In short, the course would provide a wholistic overview of the applications of organometallic chemistry in the dual worlds of chemical synthesis and biology.
