Course description and aims

The goal is for students to learn basic knowledge of approaches to synthetic chemistry and synthesis methods for organic and polymeric materials.

Student learning outcomes

Molecular structure design based on fundamental concepts of organic synthetic chemistry is important for the development of organic and polymeric materials. The most suitable raw materials and reactive agent, and a precise exploration of reaction pathways are necessary for creating high-performance, high-function materials from low-cost starting materials. The instructor in this course will introduce basic concepts of retrosynthesis chemistry as an approach to synthetic organic methods, with the goal of students learning diverse functional group transformation reactions and bond-forming methods.

Keywords

retrosynthesis, organic and polymeric material, functional group transformation, molecular design

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

The class will move forward in line with handout contents. Handouts are distributed as necessary at the beginning of class. The instructor will go over and review the content of the previous class at the start of class. The instructor will solve practice problems during class, supplementing careful explanations. It is recommended that students prepare and review before and after class based on handout materials.
