Learning Objectives

Represent and illustrate the electronic and structural features of organic molecules; Assign correctly IUPAC names to organic molecules. Sorting the organic molecules according to the functional groups and, based on these, know their typical reactivity. Know the main reactions focusing on the mechanistic details that allow the interconversion of functional groups. Identify appropriate strategies for solving problems in order to rework the main concepts covered.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The student must show knowledge and understanding of organic reactions required to produce synthetic processes of complex molecules.
The student must show to apply their knowledge, understanding and ability to solve problems in topics related to the behavior of organic substances included in a general context and will be able to communicate clearly with a chemical language adapted his conclusions, and the knowledge to specialist and non-specialist. The student will have developed those learning skills as they will be prerequisites for future teaching programs.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Supporting Activities

There will be 10 additional hours during which qualified personnel will carry out exercises as a supplementary activity to the course.


Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Lectures using slides and videos; exercises

Innovative teaching methods

Flipped classroom: short videos from JoVe magazine relating the topics are made available to the students in advance of the lesson  through the Moodle Blended platform to give  the opportunity to study before and in an autonomous manner, the topics that will then be discussed in the classroom.

Learning by doing: the objective is achieved through total synthesis exercises of organic molecules, stimulating students to implement the best strategies to obtain them.

The intent is not limited to the acquisition of skills alone but aims to enhance the ability of each student by promoting their self-esteem

Attendance

The basic notions of General Chemistry constitute a prerequisite for better understanding and studying the topics covered.

Course books

• Lectures notes, PDF copy of slides and
one of the recommended books:
J. McMurry CHIMICA ORGANICA un approccio biologico ZANICHELLI
J. G. Smith FONDAMENTI DI CHIMICA ORGANICA McGRAW-HILL
For exercises:
T. W. Graham Solomons, G. B. Fryhle, R. G. Johnson LA CHIMICA ORGANICA ATTRAVERSO GLI ESERCIZI ZANICHELLI

Assessment

Written test for admission to the oral test

Disabilità e DSA

Le studentesse e gli studenti che hanno registrato la certificazione di disabilità o la certificazione di DSA presso l'Ufficio Inclusione e diritto allo studio, possono chiedere di utilizzare le mappe concettuali (per parole chiave) durante la prova di esame.

A tal fine, è necessario inviare le mappe, due settimane prima dell’appello di esame, alla o al docente del corso, che ne verificherà la coerenza con le indicazioni delle linee guida di ateneo e potrà chiederne la modifica.

Additional Information for Non-Attending Students
