[Summary of the course] In this course, first of all, chemical bonds will be reviewed. Stereochemistry, π-conjugation, aromaticity, and reactive intermediates will be explained.
[Aim of the course] Many functional organic compounds such as medicines, biologically active compounds, and electronic materials have been developed based on the structures and physical properties. In this course, students review organic chemistry and acquire the ability to design functional organic compounds.
By the end of this course, students acquire the following abilities to:
(1) Explain characters of chemical bonds.
(2) Explain stereochemistry of organic molecules in detail.
(3) Explain importance of pai-electron delocalization and aromaticity.
(4) Explain fundamentals of cations, anions, radicals, and carbenes.
chemical bonds, stereochemistry, π-conjugation, aromaticity, reactive intermediates
|✔ Specialist skills||Intercultural skills||Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
This course will proceed in the following order: (1) chemical bonds, (2) stereochemistry, (3) π-conjugation and aromaticity, (4) reactive intermediates. 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).
