529-0016-00LBCB III: Organic Chemistry Restricted registration - show details 8 credits12PJ. W. Bode
AbstractLaboratory course in Organic Chemistry for students of "Biochemisty - Chemical Biology"
ObjectiveIntroduction into basic techniques used in the organic laboratory. Understanding organic reactions through experiments.
ContentPart I: Basic operations such as the isolation, purification, and characterization of organic compounds: distillation, extraction, chromatography, crystallization, IR (UV/1H-NMR)-spectroscopy for the identification of the constitution of organic compounds.

Part II: Organic reactions: preparative chemistry. From simple, one-step to multi-step syntheses. The syntheses include classic Organic Chemistry as well as methods widely used in a Chemical Biology context.

AbstractAdvanced Modern Methods and Strategies in Synthesis
ObjectiveKnowledge of modern methods in asymmetric stereocontrol, enantioselective catalysis, and organic reaction mechanisms.
ContentCurrent trends in methods for and approaches to synthesis of complex natural products, pharmaceuticals, and biological molecules; fragment coupling and protecting group strategies; chemical ligation and biomolecules synthesis; enantioselective catalysis including ligand design and optimization; cross coupling reactions from preactivated precursors; C-H activation and oxidation chemistry; building block synthesis with chiral auxiliaries and reagents; new concepts in asymmetric catalysis. Analysis of key primarily literature including identification of trends, key precendents, and emerging topics will be emphasized.
Lecture noteswill be provided in class and online
