AbstractOxidation of organic compounds; reductions; one electron transfer reactions; pericyclic reactions; cycloadditions; sigmatropic rearrangements; sextett rearrangements and related reactions; organometallic chemistry; application of the reactions in natural product synthesis
ObjectiveIn this course the major classes of organic transformations will be discussed and illustrated with pertinent examples. Oxidation and reduction reactions will be covered in the first part of the course and this will be followed by a survey of one-electron tranfer processes. The structure and reactivity of nitrenes and carbenes (reactive intermediates) will be described in the second section of the course. Pericyclic reactions will be covered in part three of the course and students will given an overview of preparative organometallic chemistry. The final section of the course includes and introduction to complex molecule synthesis and retrosynthetic analysis.
ContentThe Woodward-Hoffmann rules, electrocyclic reactions, sigmatropic rearrangements, cycloaddition reactions with detailed focus on the Diels-Alder reaction and 1,3 dipolar cycloadditions, oxidation and reduction, dissolving metal reductions, radical reactions, photochemical reactions, introduction to organometallic chemistry.
