The purpose of this course is to acquire the basic knowledge of organic reactions. This course focuses on the reactive functional groups, such as amines and alcohols. After the characteristics and detailed reactions of these functional groups are explained, their roles in biomolecules are introduced.
By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand the basic mechanism of organic reactions.
2) Know the reactivity of specific functional groups and the synthesis of various organic compounds.
3) Grasp the chemical structure‒property relationship.
4) Apply the basic knowledge about the organic reactions to designing biomolecules.
