Semester 2

The aim of this module is to build on Levels 1-3 chemistry teaching and to provide you with the core skills required to design synthetic routes towards novel compounds.

On completion of this module, you will gain an understanding of several advanced methods for organic synthesis and organic synthesis design theory. The module will teach an approach to the design of synthetic routes called retrosynthetic analysis. Other topics include organometallic chemistry, palladium catalysed coupling reactions, peptide synthesis and heterocyclic chemistry.
