The objectives of the Organic Chemistry 1 course are aimed at the learning, by the student, of the fundamental principles of organic chemistry: from the nature of chemical bonds to the molecular structure, from the shape of the molecules to the stereochemistry up to the study of the reactivity of the organic compounds based on the nature of their functional groups. Therefore, the ability to recognize functional groups, the understanding of reaction mechanisms and the critical evaluation of related stereochemical aspects are the fundamental objectives of teaching. The purpose of this course is to provide a reasoning method to facilitate the learning of the basic notions. In this regard there will be numerous examples of practical application of the concepts taught and the lessons will be accompanied by exercises on the blackboard with the aim of deepening and assimilating the topics covered in the theoretical lessons.
Expected learning outcomes
At the end of the course, students must be able to: - acquire the appropriate terminology to name the molecules and describe their reactivity; discuss the mechanisms of organic reactions applied to specific substrates; propose synthetic routes for the construction of simple organic molecules; - possess the ability to present their knowledge in a clear and orderly manner, with appropriate scientific language and with rigorous arguments.
