Prerequisites

General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry

Intended learning outcomes

The course intends to give the student a broader and deeper understanding of organic chemistry. After completion of the course the student shall have the following skills:

  • Explain the properties and reactivity of organic compounds related to structure
  • Account for reaction mechanisms
  • Describe methods for transforming organic compounds
  • Explain/account for the outcome of reactions
  • Describe and plan simple synthesis
  • Basic knowledge of spectroscopic techniques for structure determinations and interpretation of simple spectra and data
  • Use common laboratory techniques and methods for separation

Course content

  • Structure, chemical and physical properties of organic compounds
  • Conformations and stereochemistry
  • Chemical reactions such as substitution, elimination, addition, oxidation and reduction are treated in the aspect of functional groups
  • Transformation of molecules in both synthetic and biological systems
  • Reaction mechanisms, reactive intermediates, energy profiles and kinetics
  • Planning of synthesis and synthetic strategies
  • Organic spectroscopy, primary Infrared and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
  • Carbohydrates and other natural products are studied along with biological applications
  • Knowledge of safety risks are included
  • Organic synthesis, separation methods and chromatography are practiced

Teaching and working methods

The theoretical part consists mainly of lectures. The lessons include problem solving towards reaction mechanisms. The experimental part consists of organic reactions and synthesis correlated to the theoretical part of the course. Special laboratory facilities are needed.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
