CHEM 563 - Advanced Organic Synthesis (Put on reserve 9/16/15.)

Fundamentals of modern synthetic organic chemistry. Major emphasis is on more advanced synthetic transformations and strategies. Put on reserve 9/16/15. Will go inactive 8/24/18. Course will not have an established scheduling pattern.

Prerequisite: CHEM 363 or the equivalent, or permission of the instructor.


Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Access and use online and hard-copy organic chemistry reference resources and be able to choose among available resources for a particular research topic.
  • Provide plausible mechanisms and rationalize the stereo chemical issues present (when applicable) for fundamental and important synthetic transformations in organic chemistry.
  • Identify several disparate retrosynthetic possibilities for a given synthetic target and assess which disconnections among the available choices are better than others and why.
  • Recognize regio-, c·hemo-, and stereoselectivity issues that may influence the plausibility and success of a chosen reaction sequence in a total synthesis endeavor.
  • Identify key strategies used in the construction of landmark chemical syntheses reported in the literature.
