Course description and aims

The course is designed to understand stereoelectronic effects to understand general reactivity of organic compounds and stereoselectivity in organic reactions. This course also focuses on the fundamental aspects of the intermolecular interactions associated with organic molecules as well as the structures of supramolecular assemblies.

Student learning outcomes

Students will able to explain basic facts related to the stereochemistry of organic compounds and the stereoselectivity of reactions such as the stereoelectronic effect and molecular orbital theory. Students will also gain an understanding of the role of intermolecular interactions on the structures and reactions of organic compounds.

Keywords

Stereoelectronic effect, Stereochemistry, Intermolecular interaction, Supramolecular chemistry

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Most course contents and topics are given by board writing.
