5.373 Dinitrogen Cleavage


Class Info

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.

This class has 5.03, and 5.363 as prerequisites. This class has 5.61 as a corequisite.

5.373 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by C. Cummins.

Lecture occurs 12:00 PM to 13:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-231.

This class counts for a total of 4 credits.
