Vorlesung

  • Fundamental principles of organic chemistry (such as theory of chemical bonds and molecular structure),
  • Introduction into important classes of organic substances (including essential classes of biomolecules) with a special focus on their physical and chemical properties (such as volatility, polarity, solubility, acidity / basicity).
  • Presentation of typical chemic
  • al reactions of organic compounds including reaction mechanisms,
  • Influences of stereochemical aspects on the molecular structure as well as the physical and chemical properties of organic substances.
  • Comparison of chemical and biochemical reaction pathways for selected reactions (such as oxidations and acetylations)
