AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

To furnish advances concepts in organic synthesis. In particular:

  • Synthesis with organometal reagents/catalysts (including boron and phosphorus compounds)
  • Biocatalytic synthesis
  • Photochemical synthesis

Teaching methods

Traditional lessons in the classroom (32 hours). The attendance is not compulsory but, for statistical means, it wil be anyway monitored.

The course will be given in english on request (the slides are in english).

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

1) Chemistry of organoboron and organocopper compounds (5 hours)

2) Palladium catalysed reactions (8 hours)

3) Olefin metathesis (4 hours)

4) Other organometal catalysed reactions (5 hours)

5) Biocatalysis in organic synthes (10 hours)

RECOMMENDED READING/BIBLIOGRAPHY

No specific text will be followed. The slides will be published on aulaweb

TEACHERS AND EXAM BOARD

Ricevimento: Luca Banfi is always present in the department from 8.30 to 13.00 and from 15.00 to 18.30. However, due to the many lessons and exams he is involved in and to the institutional meetings, it is impossible to establish in advance a time interval where he will be surely not engaged. Therefore students are pleased to take an appointment in advance by E-mail. They will be received in few days.

EXAMS

Exam description

The exam will be oral and will regard exclusively the subjects treated during the lessons (the slides are available on aulaweb). Students must register 48 hours in advance on

https://servizionline.unige.it/studenti/esami/prenotazione

Assessment methods

The oral exam is always carried out by two teachers with at least 5 years of experience and will last at least 30 minutes. In this way, the commission is definitely able to verify with high accuracy if the student has reached or not the learning outcomes.

During the oral exam the student must demonstrate to have reached the learning outcomes, both orally and (most importantly) writing formulas, chemical equations, mechanisms.

When the commission will judge that the learning oucomes have not been reached, the students willbe invited to repeat the exam in one of the subsequent dates.
