On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Understand the physical methods available for probing organic reaction mechanisms and how these may be used in the elucidation of some fundamental reactions mechanisms and suggest syntheses of simple organic molecules from readily available starting materials using retrosynthetic analysis
- Describe the chemistry of important classes of antibacterial agents and the basic principles of drug design.
- understand how the chemistry of metal complexes may be used and adapted to provide mechanisms for catalytic transformations.
- Show proficiency in the quantitative analysis of kinetic data and the ability to relate a theoretical reaction mechanism to an experimentally determined rate law.
- Predict the structure and reactivity of simple organometallic complexes.
