The need for new functional molecules is greater than ever, with ever-growing demand for new therapeutics and materials for the future. The course will focus on developing key skills in making complicated organic molecules from simple building blocks, and transforming one organic molecule to another using the synthetic toolbox. Students will be trained in modern synthetic methodologies and their application in industry to solve real world problems. The concept of retrosynthetic analysis, a logic-based tool that uses pattern recognition and mechanistic understanding for the design of synthetic pathways, will be taught and illustrated with classic case studies, including the synthesis of natural products and bioactive molecules.
