Hours of instruction:

Weekly: six hours of lectures + four hours of labwork (6+0+4)

Goals:

I. To introduce students to the fundamentals of retrosynthetic analysis of organic molecules; developing students’ ability to plan synthesis and apply familiar reactions in the syntheses of relatively simple target molecules.

II. To introduce students to the traditional and modern approaches in the field of the chemistry of heterocyclic compounds.

III. Introduction to medicinal chemistry and biological activity of some classes of heterocyclic compounds.

Outcome:

I. Ability to independently perform retrosynthetic analysis of some simple/moderately complex organic molecules.

II. Understanding structure, properties and reactivity of some classes of heterocyclic compounds.

III. Acquired knowledge of the properties which differentiate an interesting molecule from a drug.

Teaching methods:

I. Lectures.

II. Lectures and experimental exercises.

III. Lectures.
