The course focuses on stereoelectronic properties of organic compounds, conformational analysis, reaction thermodynamics and kinetics, stereochemistry, reactive intermediates, and catalysis. Case studies will focus on applications of these concepts and corresponding techniques that lead to creative design of selective organic synthesis and mechanistic insights into complex organic transformations. A particular emphasis is on the development of chemical and mechanistic intuition that will facilitate the students' laboratory research efforts.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: CHEM 3580 or CHEM 3600, and CHEM 3900 or equivalents, or permission of instructor.
