Aims, contents and method of the course

The participants perform individual synthetic examples to broaden their practical skills in organic chemistry
The objective of the course is to improve the participants' knowledge of synthetic organic chemistry. A series of 11 individual synthetic steps will be performed to illustrate and practice typical working methods, as well as separation and purification procedures like extraction, distillation, chromatography, crystallization, and performing reactions under absolute conditions. Control of purity and/or characterization of isolated products will be done by physical and/or spectroscopic methods. For selected examples a literature search, including on-line information retrieval will be performed with the aim to evaluate, adapt, and apply known synthetic procedures.

Assessment and permitted materials

Preparation and characterization of the products, oral examinations during the course, literature search, practical skills (maximum 18 pt per example). For details see: “Praktikumsordnung”.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Lectures “Organische Chemie I” and “Chemisches Grundpraktikum II” as well as parallel registration for the “Proseminar in Organic Chemistry” are mandatory.
Recommened: Basic knowledge in spectroscopy, recommendation: “Molekülspektroskopische Übungen”
