Synthetic strategies based on organocatalyzed processes, such as stereoselective aldol and Mannich reaction, Michael and Diels-Alder addition, Friedel-Crafts-like functionalization, allylation, transfer hydrogenation, and hydrosilylation, etc.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Fialová Jana (05.05.2022)

Students will be able to:

perceive organocatalytic reactions in terms known to you from the previous courses on organic chemistry and biochemistry

recognise and understand the basic organocatalytic reactions

understand the mechanisms of organocatalyzed reactions and to broaden the mechanistic understanding in general organic chemistry.

identify conditions required for catalytic cycles to be efficient.

use organocatalysis for designing key steps in the synthesis of organic molecules.
