Course objectives
Organic chemistry of hydrocarbon derivatives. Analysis of functional groups structure and their reactivity, influence of the neighbouring skeleton upon their reactivity and opposite influence of the certain functional group upon the hydrocarbon skeleton. Sacharides, steroids and heterocyclic compounds in an overview. At the end of the course the student should understand reactivity of various functional groups and their influence upon the hydrocarbon skeleton with the final aim to deduce chemical behaviour of a complex molecule, which might be a centre of the interest.
  • Organic Chemistry II 1. Alkenes and alkynes. Reactivity of the nucleophilic alkenes (Organic Chemistry I). Addition of electrophiles onto alkenes and alkynes: halogenations, hydration, epoxidation, hydroboration, dihydroxylation, hydrogenation. Radical additions. Carbocation rearrangements. Preparation of alkenes and alkynes. 2. Alcohols, Thiols, Amines and their derivatives. Acidity and basicity. Nucleophilicity. Substitution / elimination and the role of leaving group (Organic Chemistry I). Preparation of alcohols (hydration, hydroboration, reduction of carbonyl compounds). Conversion of hydroxyl group into good leaving groups (halides, sulfonates) – application in substitution and elimination reactions. Amines as common organic bases. Preparation of amines (alkylation, reductive amination). Conversion of amino group into quarternary ammonium salts and N-oxides. Preparation of thiols and their oxidation to sulfoxides and sulfones. Ethers and epoxides – preparation and reactivity. Oxidation of alcohols to carbonyl compounds. 3. Aldehydes and ketones. Addition to the carbonyl group (Organic Chemistry I). Irreversible addition reactions. Organolithium and organomagnesium reagents and formation of C-C bonds. Reversible addition reactions with alcohols (hemiacetals, acetals) and amines (imines, enamines). Protecting groups. Reductive amination and Wittig reaction. 4. Enols and enolates. Keto-enol tautomerism (Organic Chemistry I). Contrast with reactivity of carbonyl group and similarities with reactivity of alkenes. Halogenation, alkylation, aldol reaction, and Mannich reaction. Synthetic equivalents of enols and enolates (enamines, enol ethers). 1,2- versus 1,4-addition. 5.Carboxylic acid derivatives. Substitution at the carbonyl group (Organic Chemistry I). Preparation of and conversion between the individual derivatives (acid chlorides, anhydrides, esters, amides). Chemoselectivity. Extension of the enolate chemistry: Claisen condensation. Common features of rearrangements: Baeyer-Villiger oxidation, Schmidt rearrangement, Curtius rearrangement, Beckmann rearrangement. 6. Aromatic compounds. Aromaticity, electrophilic and nucleophilic aromatic substitution, and substituent effects (Organic Chemistry I). Synthetic strategies for preparation of polysubstituted aromatic rings. 7. Dienes and polyenes. Conjugation and delocalization (Organic Chemistry I). Pericyclic reactions (Diels-Alder reaction, electrocyclizations, sigmatropic rearrangements). Power of transition metal chemistry: preparation of alkenes and dienes (cross-couplings, olefin metathesis). 8. Alkanes and carbenes. Radical substitution. Preparation and reactivity of carbenes: cyclopropanation and insertion into C-H bonds. 9. Organic molecules as building blocks of biological systems.
