  • English
  • If sufficient demand
  • The course in advanced physical organic chemistry gives a deeper understanding of the physical properties of organic molecules as well as organic reaction mechanisms.
  • The material is divided into nine thematic sessions: chemical bond, acids and bases, carbocations, ionic reactions, stereoelectronic effects, the carbonyl group, radical reactions, pericyclic reactions, and photochemistry. A more complex session finishes the course. An individual project concerning physical organic aspects of the research project is also a part of the course. Each session consists of a number of questions which will be presented orally and written.
