The course Stereoselective Organic Syntheses includes basic organic stereochemistry, physico-chemical aspects of stereochemical transformations, analytical methods applicable to the studies of stereoizomers and stereoselective reactions, and methods of stereoselective syntheses of organic compounds. A series of diastereoselective and enantioselective organic reactions will be presented, and advantages or disadvantages of particular synthetic approaches will be discussed.
Aim of the course -
