To furnish advances concepts in organic synthesis. In particular:
A good knowledge of organic chemistry and of the main synthetic methods. Typically this corresponds to have acquired at least 20 credits in organic chemistry courses.
Traditional lessons in the classroom. The slides are in english. Upon request of at least 1 student the module will be given in english.
1) Chemistry of organoboron and organocopper compounds (5 hours)
2) Palladium catalysed reactions (8 hours)
3) Olefin metathesis (4 hours)
4) Other organometal catalysed reactions (5 hours)
5) Biocatalysis in organic synthes (10 hours)
No specific text will be followed. The slides will be published on aulaweb
Office hours: The teacher is always present in the Department between 8.00 and 13.00 and 15.00 and 18.30 (except in august).

During the oral exam the student must demonstrate to have reached the learning outcomes, both orally and (most importantly) writing formulas, chemical equations, mechanisms.
When the commission will judge that the learning oucomes have not been reached, the students willbe invited to repeat the exam in one of the subsequent dates.
