The aim of the course is to give to the students the tolls to efficiently design the synthesis of complex organic compounds on the light of the present requirement of the environmentally acceptable chemistry.
At the end of the course the student will know the modern advanced strategies of the organic chemistry related with the environmental issues (i.e. catalysis, atom efficiency, sustainable technologies, etc).
The student will be able to write the disconnection approaches of organic molecules after having find out the relations between the functional groups and to design the best synthesis through catalytic approaches exploiting not only his/her knowledges of organic chemistry but also those of the environmentally acceptable synthesis learnt during the course.
He will be able to evaluate in a judgmental manner his knowledges and will achieve the skill to find out the best disconnection analysis and then the best synthetic route by planning the experimental activity, evaluating the procedures and the environmental issues by using also the information from the literature.
The student will achieve not only the ability to communicate by using a proper scientific language the chemical and scientific problems with the experts of the area but also that of interact with people in multidisciplinary projects.
Finally the student will be able to critically analyse the experimental results with the aim of obtaining the best chemical synthesis on the basis of the best disconnection approach developed on the light of the laboratory experimental results; he will achieve the ability to correlate the topics of the course with those of the other main courses of the industrial chemistry degree.
