Course content
This course aims at providing the student with the knowledge required to tackle all the fundamental problems of organic chemistry, with particular emphasis focussed on the study and the understanding of the chemical properties and reactivity of aliphatic compounds.
In the theory part of the course the concepts of chemical bonding and atom ibridization will be briefly summarized, followed by an introduction to stereochemistry and conformational analysis. Then, the standard classification of organic compounds on the basis of their reactivity deriving from the presence of functional groups will be presented in the following sequence: alkanes, haloalkanes, alchools, thiols, amines, alkenes, alkynes, polyenes, allylic and other delocalized systems, carbonyl compounds, carboxylic acids and their derivatives.
With the in-class exercises the student will be trained in solving simple problems of organic chemistry and of retro-synthetic analysis of relatively complex structures.
