At the end of the course the student is expected to be able to:
-to understand the scientific methodology that is the basis of organic chemistry and related disciplines
-to posses the basic concepts to understand, and also predict, the reactivity of the functional groups present in simple as well as complex organic molecules
-to know the basic language regarding the rationalization and interpretation of the main reaction mechanisms in correlation with the different mono and poly functional groups that are the subject of the course.
-to posses the expertise to rationalize the reactivity of functional groups present in organic molecules and to preview the reactivity of organic compounds according to the main reaction mechanisms
-to apply the retrosynthetic approach to the preparation of simple organic compounds.
