Modern principles of organic synthesis are taught with the focus on reduction and oxidation of organic compounds, introduction of halogenes, nitro, nitroso, sulfo groups, application of alkylation and acylation reactions for design of a broad range of organic componds, application of organometallic compounds, application of diazonium salts, and formation of alkenes and alkynes by elimination reactions. Modern methods of transformation of the carbonyl and carboxylic groups. Principles of protection in organic synthesis. A very good knowledge of subjects Organic chemistry I, Organic Chemistry II, and Mechanisms of Organic Reactions is required. To be admitted, students will have to pass successfuly an introductory test.
