AbstractClassification of organic reactions, reactive intermediates: radicals, carbocations, carbanions, electrophilic aromatic substitution, electrophilic addition to double bonds, HSAB concept, nucleophilic substitution at sp3 hybridized carbon centres (SN1/SN2 reactions), nucleophilic aromatic substitutions, eliminations, oxidations, reductions.
ObjectiveUnderstanding of fundamental reactivity principles and the relationship between structure and reactivity. Knowledge of the most important raection types and of selected classes of compounds.
