Advanced Synthesis - CBMS303

This unit examines advanced topics in organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry. Specific topics may include: synthesis with selectivity, coordination chemistry, rearrangement reactions and advanced spectroscopic methods. These topics build upon the foundation of CBMS203, using the same text books supplemented with inexpensive Oxford Chemistry Primers on the specified topics. This unit requires good skills in organic and inorganic chemistry; a background in other aspects of chemistry will be advantageous. The laboratory sessions are aimed at developing skills in organic and inorganic synthesis, using reactions studied in lectures and in the spectroscopic identification of organic compounds.
