Learning outcomes

Organic nomenclature, sterohemistry, reaction mechanisms of functional groups, basics of intramolecular participation, diastereoselectivity, asymmetric synthesis and organometallic catalysis, and skill to plan multistep synthetic pathways.


The focus of this course is on in-depth understanding of the relationship between organic structure and reactivity. The course is largely based on the book of Maitland Jones: Organic Chemistry, but discussion on diastereoselectivity, asymmetric synthesis and organometallic catalysis follow the book of Clayden, Greeves, Warren: Organic Chemistry.
