Biocatalysis as a Tool for the Synthetic Chemist, Nice, France

Date: 06-Nov-18 to 07-Nov-18
Location: Nice / France
The aim of the course is to give organic chemists an understanding and an overview of the subject of biotransformations. Attendees will learn about the main classes of enzymes and the transformations these enzymes carry out. Each transformation type will be illustrated with examples and case studies and the course will also include problem sessions where attendees will work on real examples applying biotransformations to organic synthesis. Recent developments in the field will be covered as well as an overview of the sort of equipment and resources required.

Organometallic Chemistry - from Magnesium to Palladium, Nice, France

Date: 08-Nov-18 to 09-Nov-18
Location: Nice / France
This course will cover stoichiometric organometallics such as Grignard reagents and catalytic organometallics based mainly on palladium and other platinum group metals. The first day will concentrate on Grignard reagents and organolithiums and organozincs including preparation and uses and safety aspects of these reagents. Catalytic C-C and C-X bond forming reactions will be covered on day 2, concentrating on palladium catalysis, but with discussion of systems using other metals such as copper, nickel, ruthenium, rhodium and iridium. Throughout the course the emphasis will be on practical methods of carrying out synthetically useful reactions. Many case studies and industrial examples will be included to illustrate the utility of both catalytic and stoichiometric organometallic reactions.
