Basic knowlege of Chemical Bonding and Physical Chemistry
Organic structures: molecules represenation, functional groups, systematic nomenclature atomic and molecular orbitals, hibridization. Delocalization and conjugated systems: Resonance, conjugated dienes, carbonlys, a,b-insaturation, alilic systems and aromaticity. Organic reactions squematization. Reactional profiles: Thermodynamics and kinetics. Acidity and basicity. Nucleofilicity and electrofilicity.Conformational analysys: conformation of linear and cyclic compounds. Stereochemistry: chirality, CIP rules, diastereomers and enantiomers. Carbonyl group chemistry: nucleofile substitution at the carbonyl carbon, conjugated addition vs. direct adition to carbonyl carbon. Spectroscopic Methods. 1H-NMR, IR, UV-Vis. MS. Examples.
Theoretical-practical classes (3 h)
Final (written and evtl. oral) examination. Suceed if grade > 9,5.
Alternatively, evaluation by two tests. Suceed if average grade > 9,5, without any of them < 8,0.
