The aim of the course is to provide to the students the knowledge of the functional groups of the organic molecules, studying their properties, formation and reactivity, through the study of the main mechanisms, to demonstrate the chemical reactions analyzed.
Introduction of functional groups as a substrate for organic reactions. Classification of organic reactions: addition, elimination, substitution. Main reagents: acids and bases according to Bronsted-Lowry and Lewis; nucleophiles and electrophiles. Inductive and conjugative effects. Limit structures of resonance.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)
The student will have to demonstrate its mastery of basic knowledge about the general chemistry.
The student must show knowledge and understanding of organic reactions required to produce synthetic processes of relatively complex molecules.
The student must show to apply their knowledge, understanding and skills in solving problems related to the behavior of organic substances.
The student will be able to communicate clearly with a chemical language adapted its conclusions.
The student will have developed learning skills that will enable him to continue studying in a self-directed or autonomous.
