CHEM 502 - Synthesis

Description
Mechanistic and synthetic aspects as well as applications of important organic reactions and methodologies will be discussed. This knowledge will be utilized to develop strategies towards the synthesis of multifunctional organic compounds including natural products. Through structural analysis of various target compounds using the disconnecting approach students will learn to convert a complex structure into synthons (chemical building blocks) and to plan a rational synthesis (retrosynthesis).
