Organic / Inorganic chemistry towards sustainability (5 ECTS)


  • Part I: inorganic chemistry: Definition of metal complexes, d orbitals description, crystal field theory, Molecular orbitals theory,  Angular Overlap Model. Important  parameters affecting the d block. Basics on reactivity.
  • Part II: organic chemistry: Structure and reactivity of aromatic compounds, Reactivities of carbonyls, carboxyls, amines and phosphorus compounds.


Synthesis of a ligand and complex for catalysis


Transition metal complexes are at the heart of all biological processes that support life and are crucial in the development of new technologies for a sustainable world. Research in this field spans from synthesis, spectroscopic characterization, electronic description, surface science, electrochemical and photochemical processes. This course aims at providing the students with a solid basis in coordination chemistry and related areas with the defining goals to address energetic and environmental challenges facing our societies.
