Course description and aims

[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.

Student learning outcomes

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.

Keywords

chemical bonds, stereochemistry, π-conjugation, aromaticity, reactive intermediates

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) 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.
