CHEM.5230 Organic Reaction Mechanisms (Formerly 84.523)

Id: 007708 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


The course is designed to provide an advanced understanding of the principles controlling structure/reactivity and the experimental techniques used to elucidate the mechanisms of modern organic reactions. The material covered includes; molecular orbital theory applied to bonding and reactivity, stereoelectronic and conformational effects, intermolecular interactions, potential energy surfaces, reaction kinetics, reaction mechanisms, catalytic methods, pericyclic reactions, and protochemistry. Introductory applications of computational chemistry is covered. The course is open to undergraduate students (with permission) interested in a stronger foundation in organic reactions.
