  • Overview

    This course covers topics in theoretical and practical aspects of organic synthesis similar to second semester organic chemistry courses taught in the US and follows on from Organic chemistry I for visiting students or equivalent course.

     
    By the end of this course students will be able to:
    • describe the chemistry and predict reactivity a range functional groups in organic chemistry
    • plan synthetic routes to simple organic compounds particularly involving carbonyl chemistry
    • draw mechanisms for organic reactions
    • describe the chemistry of biologically important organic compounds
    • perform practical synthetic chemistry and interpretation of spectra

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
