Aims, contents and method of the course

continous assessment of course work, accompanying proseminar to “Advanced laboratory course in Organic Chemistry”; mandatory course, Bachelor’s program in Chemistry

Aim: Broadening the participant’s knowledge on the mechanistic basics of organic chemistry. Held in parallel to the practical course “Advanced Laboratory Course in Organic Chemistry”. This proseminar’s aim is to deepen the participant’s knowledge in organic chemistry and its mechanistic backgrounds. Based on the content of the lecture “Organische Chemie I” the general reactions types (nucleophilic and electrophilic substitution, addition, elimination and rearrangements) are discussed. Different behavior of functional groups and substructures is discussed from the mechanistic point of view and examples are shown for the discussed reactions.

Assessment and permitted materials

continuous assessment of course work, 3 mandatory exams: 20.03., 03.04. and 26.4. 13:15 – 14:15 h (HS2)

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The lectures “Organische Chemie I” and “Chemisches Grundpraktikum II” as well as parallel registration for the “Advanced Laboratory Course in Organic Chemistry” are mandatory.
