|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||CHIM/06|
Main objective is to provide the students with an adequate and updated knowledge of the chemistry (synthesis, structure, reactivity) of heterocyclic systems, in agreement with their importance and interest in both the biological/pharmacological and the industrial/technological fields (as testified by the continuous appearance of research reports in the area). At the same time, starting from the behavior of some representative heterocycles, essential knowledge of reaction mechanisms and relevant kinetic laws will be furnished.
Classifications, nomenclature, properties, reactivity of heterocyclic compounds. Classic and modern synthetic approaches. In particolar, the main heteroaromatic systems will be treated more extensively, while for cycles of small (3 and 4 atoms) or medium (7 and 8) size, only the more important fetures will be highlighted.
Also the forming cycles methodologies will be discussed and classified as cyclizations or cycloadditions, proceeding according to ionic or pericyclic mechanisms.
No particular texts are recommended.
Office hours: From monday to friday, by appointment only, at DCCI.
The exam (oral) will last about one hour, writing on the blackboard and discussing with the appropriated terminology the treated subjects
The exam (oral) will last about one hour, and it will be ascertained the acquisition of nomenclature, terminology, reactivity of compounds treated in this course, as well as the ability to comment an article from the recent literature.
