Speaker: Dr. Karen Goldberg, University of Washington
Title: "Activation of Strong Bonds"
One of the most important applications of organometallic chemistry has been the use of organotransition metal catalysts in the commercial production of chemicals, pharmaceuticals and organic materials. The reaction steps in the catalytic cycles are typically fundamental reactions in organometallic chemistry. This talk will focus on our recent work in developing detailed mechanistic understanding of these fundamental reactions with the goal of creating catalysts for desirable and challenging transformations.
