5.373 Dinitrogen Cleavage
Introduces the research area of small-molecule activation by transition-element complexes. Covers techniques such as glove-box methods for synthesis for exclusion of oxygen and water; filtration, reaction mixture concentration, and recrystallization under a dinitrogen atmosphere and under static vacuum. Characterization methods include proton NMR spectroscopy of both paramagnetic and diamagnetic systems, Evans method magnetic susceptibility measurement, UV-Vis spectroscopy, and infrared spectroscopy of a metal-nitrogen triple bond system.
5.373 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by C. Cummins.
Lecture occurs 12:00 PM to 13:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-231.
