    OVERVIEW

    the course aims at illustrating how light can interact with organic molecules, what the possible outcomes are and how these can be exploited by organic chemists.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    At the end of this course the students will understand how light can interact with organic molecules and what the possible outcomes are. The students will be able to: • distinguish between a photoinduced reaction and a photocatalyzed process • understand pros and cons of the use of various light sources • design a photochemical process both in batch and under flow conditions • critically analyze a scientific report

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course gives an introduction to the basic principles of the interaction between light and matter. Emphasis will be given to organic molecule transformations, through photoinduced reactions and through the use of photocatalysts. Practical and technical aspects on the set-up of a photochemical reaction in batch and under flow conditions will be also discussed. The aims of the course will be fulfilled through "traditional" lectures and innovative approaches, including the use of databases for literature searching, flipped classroom, interactive activities (i.e. visit to a photochemistry lab).
