The lecture "Chemistry of heterocyclic compounds" aims at providing an overview of the reactivity of individual heterocyclic compounds and the conditions for their transformation. Student should be able to devise a synthesis of any heterocyclic system in a short time with the assistance of literature and chemical databases and know the general reactivity and transformation of basic heterocyclic compounds.

Students have to know the nomenclature of heterocyclic systems and the basic reactivity of heterocyclic compounds listed in the syllabus, i.e. their reactivity with nucleophilic, electrophilic agents, metalation and cycloaddition reactions. They must also be able to suggest the synthesis of complicated heterocyclic systems using the chemical literature and databases.
