Metal–Olefin Interactions: Classical Bonding Motifs Inspire Innovations in Catalysis



WEBINAR

Olefins are versatile building blocks readily accessed from petrochemical or biorenewable feedstocks. Transition metal catalysis offers the opportunity to unlock the unique reactivity patterns of olefins, providing a platform to convert them into useful building blocks for organic synthesis. This seminar will examine how consideration of the fundamental bonding interactions between olefins and metals and the elementary organometallic steps that ensue has fueled advances in selective catalytic olefin functionalization methodology and the design of bench-stable low-valent metal precatalysts for diverse synthetic applications.

Key Learnings

  • Understand the fundamental bonding interactions between olefins and metals.
  • Explore selective catalytic olefin functionalization methodology.
  • Acquire knowledge about designing bench-stable low-valent metal precatalysts.
