Learning Outcomes
The study of methodology (general issues) and special issues of organic synthesis from the synthetic point of view. Application of spectroscopic methods (MS, IR, NMR) for the elucidation of organic compound's structure.There are specific syntheses in the laboratory session. The knowledge of general Organic Chemistry is necessary.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Work autonomously
  • Generate new research ideas
