Chemistry 3371 Inorganic Chemistry II
Organometallic chemistry of the transition metal elements. Basic principles of organometallic chemistry, including structural geometry and the various forms of structural isomerism, hard/soft acid/base theory, electron counting and the "18-electron" rule and discussions on metal-ligand interactions using a molecular orbital approach; common classes of ligands observed in organometallic chemistry; reactions of organometallic compounds, including ligand substitution reactions, insertion/elimination reactions, and nucleophilic/electrophilic attack on coordinated ligands; parallels between main group and organometallic chemistry, including the isolobal analogy and metal-metal bonds.
