Description

This module covers aromatic chemistry topics, including the reactivity of benzene derivatives and a range of heterocyclic compounds. The importance of stereochemistry in a pharmaceutical environment is also examined, including such topics as stereoselectivity, stereospecificity and asymmetric synthesis. Molecular orbital theory leading to product determination in cycloaddition and electrocyclic reactions are also studied.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Evaluate the reactivity of a range of benzene derivatives.

2.

Identify and appraise a range of heterocyclic compounds.

3.

Describe stereoselectivity and stereospecificity.

4.

Explain the basis of nucleoplilic and electrophilic substitution reactions.

5.

Determine synthetic routes to a range of organic chemical compounds.

6.

Use molecular orbital theory to explain the products obtained in some cycloaddition and electrocyclic reactions.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

This module will be delivered full‑time. It will include lectures and class discussions.This approach is expected to address student learning needs. Moodle will be used as a repository of educational resources.

Module Assessment Strategies

Students will be assessed using a blend of essay / short answer questions, reinforced with a final written exam.

 

 

Repeat Assessments

Students may repeat Continuous Assessment and / or Final Theory Exam as required
