Course description and aims

[Summary of the course] In this course, nucleophilic additions of aldehydes and ketones, synthesis and reactions of carboxylic acids and nitriles together with acidity, and chemistry of carboxylic acid derivatives based on the properties of carboxylic acids and nucleophilic acyl substitution will be explained.
[Aim of the course] Students learn that many useful compounds can be synthesized by utilizing characters of carbonyl groups. Also students can acquire ability to discuss reaction mechanisms (organic electron theory).

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students acquire the following abilities to:
(1) Explain nucleophilic additions of aldehydes and ketones with showing movement of electrons.
(2) Explain synthesis and reactions of carboxylic acids and nitriles as well as acidity.
(3) Explain synthesis and reactions of carboxylic acid derivatives based on chemistry of carboxylic acids and nucleophilic acyl substitution.

Keywords

carbonyl groups, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, nitriles, acyl halides, carboxylic acid anhydrides, esters, amides, nucleophilic addition, nucleophilic acyl substitution

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

This course will proceed in the following order: (1) aldehydes and ketones based on nucleophilic additions, (2) carboxylic acids and nitriles together with acidity, (3) carboxylic acid derivatives and nucleophilic acyl substitution. In the last day, practice problems and
interpretation of them will be carried out to confirm the level of understanding.
