To introduce the student to advanced concepts of Organic Chemistry.
Knowledge and understanding: aim of the course is to acquire the knowledge on the fundamental aspects of the mechanisms, of the thermodynamis and kinetics of organic reactions. The ability to understand more in details the reactivity and properties of organic compounds will be especially stimultated.
Applying knowledge and understanding: in parallel to theoretical explanations, the student will be guided through the resolution of organic chemistry problems also to train the student to apply and reinforce the concepts acquired.
Making judgements: The student will possibly acquire a complete autonomy in the interpretation of the reactivity of organic reactions object of the course. Moreover he should be able to understand and identify the thermodynamics and kinetics issues of a given organic chemistry reaction.
Communication: at the end of the course, the student should be able to properly communicate using the typical terminology of organic chemistry and shouild also be able to discuss problems of stereochemistry and reactivity of the main classes of the organic compounds object of the course.
Lifelong learning skills: the student will be trained to understand and interpret the reactivity of organic compounds through the observation of experimental results.
