      The goalThe goal of the course is to introduce students to the basic as well as advanced knowledge of homogenous and heterogenous catalysis in organic chemistry.
      The outcomeStudent will acquire the expertise to critically analyze and link new and complex ideas, the ability to develop new ideas and a good understanding of the learning process. Student will analyze, evaluate and connect new and complex ideas and be able to make strategic decisions.
      Contents of lecturesBasic principles of catalysis. Homogenous and heterogenous catalysis. Phase-transfer catalysis. Asymmetric catalysis. Photocatalysis of organic molecules. Enzyme catalyzed reactions.
