Prerequisites

Organic Chemistry, Master

Intended learning outcomes

The course is a continuation in organic chemistry and has the intention to give the student a profound knowledge in molecular structure, chemical bonding, quantum chemistry etc. This knowledge is applied in chemical reaction mechanisms and in spectroscopic methods. After studies well learned the student will have proficiency in:

  • understanding physical-organic relationship between structure and reactivity
  • identifying intermediate structures and explaining reaction procedures and mechanisms
  • evaluating experimental tools to obtain information to confirm or reject a reaction mechanism
  • explaining pericyclic reactions, rearrangements, radical and carben reactions.
  • analysing laboratory obtained data from reactions and structures from given instructions with NMR and basic computer modelling.

Course content

Detailed survey on some central organic reaction mechanisms, giving knowledge on the effect of structure and reaction media on reactivity. Methods to study chemical reaction mechanisms. Symmetry-controlled reactions and reactions with reactive intermediates.

Teaching and working methods

The theory is taught in lectures, lessons and laboratory work.

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.
