Objectives of the Course
Organometallic compounds plays an important role in the catalyst researches. Especially, in recent years, chemists as well as scientists of other branches have focused on this subject with developments of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalyst system. The mean goal of this course is to give detailed information to students on organometallic compounds in the first cycle.
