Organic Synthesis

Module code: CHE302U

Credits: 15.0
Semester: SEM1

  • Semester 1: Monday 10 am - 12 pm

Contact: Dr Peter Wyatt
Overlap: None
Prerequisite: CHE202B

The module aims to provide a wide understanding of the occurrence, synthesis and behaviour of organic compounds. Topics to be covered include: theory and application of retrosynthetic analysis, modern heteroatom chemistry, reactive intermediates & aromatic chemistry. The use of spectroscopic techniques as a tool for structure determination in organic chemistry will be embedded within the course. The module builds upon the knowledge of structure and reactivity of organic molecules gained in CHE202.
