Learn the latest advances in synthetic organic chemistry. Coverage emphasizes the literature of the 2000s along with appropriate historical perspectives.
Get an overview of general concepts in synthetic organic chemistry, including fundamental elements of strategy, reactivity principles, synthetic equivalency, asymmetric synthesis, biochemical applications, and organometallic chemistry. Also, learn about the major types of reactions used to construct complex molecules, especially through use of carbon-bond forming methods.
We’ll spend time discussing applications to actual syntheses, as well as investigating the history of some of the most important methods used today.
Key topics include the following:
Registrants are encouraged to bring a small set of molecular models to the course.
