After completion of this course, students can impart essential theoretical knowledge on organometallic compounds and catalysis, applications of symmetry group theory, nuclear and radiochemistry, and supramolecular chemistry. Students can also build their problem-solving skills on the above-mentioned topic. This will assist them in various competitive examinations like CSIR-NET, GATE, and other state and national level examinations. In organometallic compounds and catalysis sections student’s gained knowledge on preparation and properties of transition metal alkyls and aryls, metal-carbene and carbyne complexes. Catalysis of organometallic compounds part helped them to understand the applications of these prepared compounds. In Group theory part students learned how to accomplish Matrix representation of groups and Character Table for a given molecule. In its application part students obtained knowledge on selection rules and fundamental vibrational transitions of molecules with different point groups. Nuclear and radiochemistry part helped students to understand various detection techniques of the nuclear radiations. Nuclear fission and fusion gave them an understanding of Atom bomb, Hydrogen bomb, and Stellar energy. Supramolecular chemistry gave them an idea of Host-guest interactions, molecular recognition, and various supramolecular devices. It is an interdisciplinary course that is very useful for students who want to pursue their research in this field.
