Organic reagents in Inorganic Analysis
Chelates and chelate effect, Organometallic reagents, Type and classification of reagents, their specificity and selectivity, applications of organometallic reagents in volumetric analysis, gravimetry, chromatography, argentometric titrations, complexometric titrations with specific examples, Complexometric and gravimetric methods involving various reagents. Brief description of some organometallic reagents, their properties and applications
Homogenous Catlysis by Transition Metal Complexes
Catalysis, different types of catalysis i.e. homogenous and heterogenous catalysis,
Homogenous catalysis: metal complex catalysis in liquid phase, elementary steps in homogenous catalysis i.e. ligand exchange dissociation and coordination, oxidative addition, reductive elimination, insertion and migration, deinsertion and beta elimination, nucleophilic attack on a coordinated substrate, asymmetric homogenous catalysis, hydrogenation, hydroformylation, Carbonylation Reaction, Catalytic addition of molecules to C-C multiple bonds
The course deals with the two important areas of inorganic chemistry i.e. the use of homogenous catalysts in different industrial processes and the use of different organic reagents in macro and micro methods of determination such as volumetric, gravimetry, polarography and chromatography.
Course Learning Outcomes
The outcomes of the study include:
-to develop understanding of various organic reagents and their applications in micro and macro analysis of various inorganic determinations such as the determination of various metal ions by titration, gravimetry, chromatography or by polarography and similarly other applications.
-introduce the students with the basis of various major industrial processes.
So students will be able to understand the process of catalysis, differentiate between homogenous and heterogenous catalysis, the pros and cons of two processes and then to understand the homogenous catalysis in terms of various catalytic cycles. It would include Shell Higher Olefin Process, Wackers Oxidation process and few more cycles. They would be able to grasp the advantages of these processes while utilizing homogenous catalysis.
