CHM 4250 - Advanced Synthetic Organic Chemistry

Credits: 4
This course will cover advanced synthetic methods with an emphasis on the application of structure and theory to mechanism and reaction dynamics. Topics include stereochemical features of reactions, conformational analysis, stereoelectronic effects and retro-synthesis of small molecules. Advanced organic reactions including modern carbon- carbon bond formation techniques, organometallic reagents, pericyclic reactions and enantioselective catalysis will also be discussed.
Prerequisite(s): A grade of C or better in CHM 2220 .
