CHM 468 Advanced Organic Chemistry
The course focuses on organic synthesis and builds upon the material covered in CHM 325
and CHM 326
. Important topics are retrosynthetic analysis, protecting groups, and carbon-carbon bond forming reactions, such as advanced enolate chemistry and palladium cross coupling reactions. Important organic chemistry models, such as the Ireland, Zimmerman-Traxler, Cram and Felkin-Ahn models are presented.
