O curso abordará “Metal Catalysts and Catalysis for Green processes” para alunos de todas as subáreas da Química. Veja a ementa abaixo:
i) Presenting the principles of homogeneous catalysis by transition metal complexes, acting as soluble catalysts, based on fundamental reactions, and of applications to Green Chemistry.
ii) Providing examples of selective transformations of alkynes using various activation processes with cheap ruthenium catalysts.
iii) Offering practical applications of alkene metathesis for the production of fine chemicals, and involving substrates arising from biomass.
iv) Demonstrating that cross coupling reactions from inert C-H bonds activation can lead to selective C-C, C-O, C-N bond formation. Various Pd, Ru, Rh and Ir catalysts will be used to illustrate various complementary applications and fundamentals of mechanisms will be discussed for both sp2 C-H and sp3 C-H bond activations.
v) Building new catalytic processes of industrial importance based on new pincer type metal complexes
vi) Showing the potential of photoredox catalysts to perform simple transformations.
