- Prerequisite: CHEM 360
This course is intended to provide an overview on the structure, properties, synthesis, and reactivity patterns of heterocyclic compounds such as pyridines, pyrroles, thiophenes, furans, and indoles. Classical and modern heterocyclic ring synthesis and functionalization methodologies will be covered, and an array of organometallic-promoted methods will be presented. The use of heterocycles in the design and synthesis of bioactive compounds in medicinal chemistry, as intermediates in the synthesis of natural products, and in the preparation of materials will be discussed.
