The mechanism of Oxidative addition of Pd(0) to Si-H bonds

Submitted by Adam Johnson / Harvey Mudd College on Tue, 10/10/2023 - 18:25
Description

I saw Amanda Cook present this work (and another paper, Organometallics202241, 997) at the Organometallics Gordon Conference in summer 2023 and while I was furiously taking notes, I knew that I wanted to teach this paper. The paper elucidates the mechanism of oxidative addition of tertiary silanes to palladium zero phosphine complexes. 

Energetics and mechanisms of reductive elimination from Pt(IV) (short version)

Submitted by Adam Johnson / Harvey Mudd College on Tue, 10/10/2023 - 17:39
Description

I am moving away from teaching the Goldberg paper (still one of my favorites) and instead wanted to teach just the highlights as part of my seminar class in organometallic chemistry this fall. I created this shorter version of the activity to use in class. I did NOT have them read the paper in advance, hence the summaries in the LO itself.

This is a collection that will help when you are deciding how to introduce inorganic chemistry and/or assess prior knowledge in your inorganic class on the first day.

Organometallic Chemistry

Submitted by Laina Geary / University of Nevada, Reno on Tue, 06/28/2022 - 17:51
Description

The goal of this course is to provide an in-depth introduction to the broad subject of organometallic chemistry. Selected topics include: main group organometallics, oxidation states, ligands, structure and bonding, mechanism and mechanistic analysis, cross coupling, hydrogenation, hydroformylation, olefin polymerization, olefin metathesis, and other applications in homogeneous catalysis and organic synthesis.

VIPEr Fellows 2022 Workshop Favorites
