[Summary of the course] In this course, fundamental chemistry of heterocyclic compounds including medicines will be explained.
[Aim of the course] Many functional organic compounds such as medicines, biologically active compounds, and electronic materials are composed of heterocyclic structures. In this course, students learn fundamentals of heterocyclic chemistry, and acquire the ability to design functional organic compounds.
By the end of this course, students acquire the following abilities to:
(1) Classify heterocyclic compounds, and explain the nomenclature.
(2) Explain synthesis and reactions of 5- and 6-membered heterocyclic compounds.
(3) Explain the importance of heterocyclic structures for nucleic acids, vitamins and the like.
heterocyclic compounds, cyclizations, cycloadditions, nucleophilic aromatic substitution, electrophilic aromatic substitution, aromaticity, biological activity
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
This course will proceed in the following order: (1) classification and nomenclature of heterocyclic compounds, (2) synthesis and reactions of 5- and 6-membered heterocyclic compounds, (3) chemistry of nucleic acids and vitamins. In the last day, practice problems and interpretation of them will be carried out to confirm the level of understanding.

Practice problems and interpretation for confirming the level of understanding (90%), level of class participation (10%) (The level of class
participation will be calculated by discussion, small examination and so on in the lecture.)
The condition of the study will not be made, but it is desirable to study Organic Chemistry I (Alkanes) (Chemical Science and Engineering),
Organic Chemistry II (Alkenes), Organic Chemistry III (Aromatic Compounds), Organic Chemistry IV (Nucleophilic Substitution), and Organic Chemistry VI (Amines).
