Compulsory Module 23: Organic Chemistry C (9 ECTS-Credits, 9 h)
Prerequisites for registration: successful completion of compulsory modules 3 (General Chemistry), 8 (Organic Chemestry A) and 13 (Organic Chemistry B)
Learning Outcome: The students are able to ¿ select, set up and operate chemical synthesis apparatus, including extraction and distillation apparatus; ¿ isolate and characterise organic compounds by extraction, distillation, recrystallisation and separation of substance mixtures, including simple syntheses; ¿ consider appropriate safety measures when conducting chemical experiments, including the handling of chemicals and the use of protective equipment; ¿ understand and apply organic synthesis as an approach to different types of organic compounds and active ingredients, including the synthesis of natural materials and selected compounds; ¿ understand and explain the principles and mechanisms of pericyclic reactions, carbonyl chemistry, transition metal mediated reactions and asymmetric synthesis, including selected reactions of carbonyl compounds; ¿ understand, master and apply modern synthesis strategies for the conversion of functional groups, including current concepts and examples for the (total) synthesis of organic compounds and natural and active substances. ¿ understand and apply basic principles of chemical biology, including solid phase synthesis of peptides and nucleic acids; ¿ explain the principles of protein catalysis and nucleic acid catalysis, including the role of cofactors in the regulation of biological systems; ¿ understand and apply the importance of bioorthogonal chemistry, including the involvement of cofactors in simple regulatory mechanisms.
