Course description and aims

This course supports students understand the contents of "Organic Chemistry III" in the first quarter of the same Academic year. In addition, we discuss experimental results from the course of "Laboratory Course in Advanced Organic Chemistry".

Solving exercise problems, drawing organic structures and reaction mechanisms with curly arrows help students understand organic chemistry in detail. Therefore, this course provides the opportunity that students draw organic molecules by hands as much as possible and supports their better understanding of advanced organic chemistry.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Explain advanced concepts of organic structures and organic reactions.
2) Explain advanced experimental methods for organic chemical reactions and the experimental results.

Keywords

Chemistry of Enolates, Benzoin Condensation, Stereochemical Problems, Carbocation Rearrangements, Claisen Rearrangement, Cross Coupling Reaction

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

In the first 20 minutes, the lecturer shows solutions for homework, and subsequently teaches main topics according to the course schedule. Then, students solve several exercise problems. In the last 10 minutes, commentary to the solution guide for the exercise problems are provided. In addition, we discuss experimental results from the course of "Laboratory Course in Advanced Organic Chemistry".
