Course curriculum

The course builds on the basic knowledge of organic chemistry acquired in the course Organic chemistry and provides students with practical solutions that require current approaches in organic synthesis. The course is focused on the application of organic synthesis to the constitution of organic molecules with precisely defined parameters and develops knowledge in the field of mechanisms of organic matter reactions. The focus will be on organic materials for energy generation, nano- and biomatetrials, and self-organizing systems.

1+2. Synthetic methods for synthesis and transformation of basic functional groups
3+4. Effect of side chain substitution and its role like electron donors and acceptors
5. Synthesis of donors
6. Synthesis of acceptors
7. Thiophene chemistry
8-11. Synthesis of π-conjugated systems via cross-coupling reactions
12+13. Basic methods of polymerization reactions

Aims

The aim of the course is a detailed study of selected fragments of organic chemistry and organic synthesis. The course will focus on chemistry of functional groups and its transformation, as well as methods of protecting functional groups. Students will also be introduced to modern methods of C-C bond formation and subsequent incorporation of molecules into oligomeric and polymeric structures. The course will be focused on single and multistage syntheses. Students will also learn the chemistry of dendrimers and the processes used to separate and purify organic molecules. The structure of the course is designed so that after completing this discipline students are well prepared for the study of other courses that immediately theoretically and practically follow up this study course.
