CHEM 760/7600 - Heteroatoms in Organic Synthesis

Semester: Winter 2019 Professor: A. Schwan | Discipline: Organic | Campus: Guelph
The course is intended to provide students with an understanding of the utility and mechanism of heteroatom-based functionalities in organic synthesis.  The influence of the heteroatom will be emphasized with examples displaying how the heteroatom directs reactivity and where applicable, stereochemistry. Students will be required to deliver two seminars and write two research essays ...

CHEM 760/7600 - Advanced Carbohydrate Chemistry

Semester: Fall 2018 Professor: F.I. Auzanneau | Discipline: Organic | Campus: Guelph
Chemistry CHEM*7600 is a one-semester course in covering the chemistry and biological chemistry of carbohydrates. This course will apply concepts learned in Chem*2700 and Chem*3750 to carbohydrate molecules and cannot be taken if the student has already taken Chem*4740 with Prof Auzanneau in a previous offering. Specific Learning Objectives: To learn about the structural fundamentals of carbohydrates. To learn the basic biological importance of ...

CHEM 766/7660 - Organic Spectroscopy

Semester: Fall 2018 Professor: J.M. Chong | Discipline: Organic | Campus: Waterloo
This course will deal with aspects of organic spectroscopy from the perspective of an organic chemist.  There will be an emphasis on fundamental principles relevant to different spectroscopic techniques but with a minimum of quantum mechanics and mathematics.  Applications of spectroscopic methods to the elucidation of organic structures will be stressed. Some basic organic chemistry knowledge (e.g. usually 4 bonds to a neutral carbon atom, common ...
