Degrees incorporating this pedagocial element :

Description

This course is divided in four main parts. The first part focusses on physical chemistry , necessary for a good understanding of chemical transformation. In the second part the chemistry of enolates will be detailed through the study of major reactions: alkylation, aldol, Claisen and 1-4 addition reactions. In the third part, pericyclic reactions will be studied (electrocyclic, cycloaddition and sigmatropic reactions). Finally the chemistry of free radicals and carbenes will be introduced. The course includes formal lectures and tutorial classes.
