The course is worth 15 credits and runs full time during the first half of the spring semester.
This course will provide you with synthetic tools to master functional group transformations and carbon-carbon bond formations on a high level. It will give you an orientation about how to perform multistep synthesis and retrosynthetic analysis will be one tool. Until now most of the reaction mechanism that you have been exposed to have been presented without experimental proofs. In this course you will be provided with a toolbox for how to decipher the reaction mechanism experimentally.
