The course aims to provide the tools for understanding the relationships between structure and physical and chemical properties of organic compounds. The student will gain the basic knowledge of organic chemistry, in particular on the structure and properties of the main classes of organic compounds. He must know the mechanisms of the main organic reactions. The student must learn the nomenclature of organic compounds; he should be familiar with three-dimensional models of molecules and know the essentials of stereochemistry.
Knowledge of experimental and theorical aspects of principal laboratory tecniques.
Lessons and exercises. See also 'Detailed Course Content'
All laboratory experiences are prepared by theoretical lessons. The crucial steps of every experience are highlighted.
