Course description and aims

In early part of this course, the basic concept of retorsynthesis will be focused, and the latter half part will deal with several examples of multistep synthesis, particularly introducing synthetic approaches to natural products.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to have an understanding of basic concept of retrosynthesis and to learn about various synthetic tactics and strategies, enabling access to complex natural products.

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.
