CHEM 102. Topics in Synthetic Organic Chemistry


This course will address selected advanced topics of current interest in the field of synthetic organic chemistry. Material will largely be drawn from the current research literature and will likely include such topics as the applications of stoichiometric and catalytic organometallic chemistry, the control of relative and absolute stereochemistry, and the use of organocatalysts. The total synthesis of architecturally challenging natural products will serve to highlight the application of these technologies.
