Course description and aims

This is a continuation of Organic Chemistry I and II, particularly focusing on general concepts for C–C bond formation and functional group transformations.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to have an understanding of basic concept of organic chemistry and mechanism of chemical reactions.

Keywords

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.

Textbook(s)

A guide book to mechanism in organic chemistry, Peter Sykes

Reference books, course materials, etc.

Organic Chemistry: Structure and Function, P Vollhardt and N. Shore

Assessment criteria and methods

Students’ course scores are based on final exams (ca. 70%) and exercise problems (ca. 30%) and also attendance.
