SPGS 007 : Catalytic Synthesis of Important Industrial Chemicals

Theory and Applications

  • course description:

    The course involves theoretical knowledge of homogeneous catalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, hybrid catalysis, catalysis by molecular organometallic, surface catalysis by zeolites and application of catalysis in synthesis of organic compounds and petrochemical processes.

  • course learning outcomes:

    At the end of the course, the participants will be able to;
    - Understanding of catalysis as it relates to petrochemical processes.
    - Review on recent development in homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis.
    - Application of carbonylation and hydroformylation in the synthesis of industrial chemicals.

  • Course outlines:

    - Catalyst synthesis and characterization.
    - Catalytic synthesis of aldehydes by hydroformylation of alkenes and alkynes.
