Course
2019-2020

Admission requirements

BSc MST students with a major in Chemistry, BSc LST students.

Description

Strategies for the synthesis of current of newly developed drugs are discussed, including retro-synthetic analysis, introduction and modification of functional groups and the use of protective groups, control of stereo- and regio-selectivity.

Course Objectives

After the course students:

  • Will have knowledge of the relation of structure and reactivity of organic molecules;

  • Will have knowledge of standard chemical reactions, with a focus on functional group conversions;

  • Will have knowledge of chemical concepts such as delocalization, conjugation, stereochemistry, tautomerism, regio-, chemo- and stereoselectivity, and aromaticity.

  • Will be able to apply the chemical concepts;

  • Will be able to predict the structures of products of standard reactions;
