Learning Objectives

The aim of the course is to provide to the students the knowledge of the functional groups of the organic molecules, studying their properties, formation and reactivity, through the study of the main mechanisms. By acquiring this knowledge, the student will be able to understand the correlation between the physical properties and chemical behavior of various substances and their structure.

Program

ALKENES

Nomenclature. Cis and trans geometric isomerism. CIP Rules. Nomenclature E, Z. Physical properties and acidity. Preparation methods. Electrophilic addition (Markovnikov reactions). Main electrophilic addition reactions. oxidation and reduction reactions.

ALKYNES

Structure and nomenclature of alkynes. Physical properties of alkynes. Acidity of 1-alkynes. Preparation of alkynes. Electrophilic additions to alkynes. Hydration of alkynes to give aldehydes and ketones. Reduction of alkynes. Organic syntheses involving alkynes

AROMATIC COMPOUNDS

Structure of benzene. Aromaticity (Huckel's rule). Nomenclature. Physical properties. Electrophilic aromatic substitution and types of reactions. Activating and deactivating. Orientation rules. Reactions on the arenas.

ALKYL HALIDES

Nomenclature. Preparation. Main reactions: SN2 and SN1 reactions, E2 and E1 reactions.

ALCOHOLS, PHENOLS, ETHERS AND EPOXIDES

Nomenclature, physical properties, preparation, chemical properties: acidity and basicity, reactivity: nucleophilic substitution, elimination, redox.

ALDEHYDES AND KETONES

Carbonyl group. Nomenclature. Preparation methods. Physical properties. Nucleophilic addition reactions. Oxidation-reduction reactions. Reactions on alpha carbon: tautomerism and aldol condensation.

CARBOXYLIC ACIDS AND DERIVATIVES

Nomenclature. Preparation. Physical properties. Acidity. Esters: nomenclature, preparation and properties. Saponification. Fatty acids.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

D1 - Knowledge and understanding skills. The student will need to know the general chemical structure of the main functional groups. He will have to know the organic compounds and know the main reactivity that characterizes the various functional groups. The level of this knowledge is evaluated with oral questions.

D2 - Ability to apply knowledge and understanding. The student must be able to understand how the physical and chemical characteristics of an organic compound are related to the chemical structure. These skills will be evaluated during the oral interview by suggesting practical problems to be solved that may affect the choice of an appropriate solvent depending on the material.

D3 - Autonomy of judgment. The student should be able to choose the type of product that best suits to solve a problem. These skills derive directly from the two previously described. This competence will be evaluated during the oral interview.

D4 - Communicative Skills. The student should be able to describe the concepts learned during the course, expressing it clearly, with appropriate terms, with clear and precise chemical formulas. During the oral interview the student will have to present some graphical concepts (diagrams, chemical formulas) through which the teacher will evaluate his synthesis skills.

D5 - Learning Ability. The student must be able to construct his or her scientific growth path in a critical and autonomous way, being able to properly use the material provided by the teacher and the in-depth material that he or she will be able to obtain. These skills will be stimulated by the teacher by suggesting further discussions to be discussed later in lesson. This ability will be evaluated through the oral interview.

Teaching Material

The teaching material prepared by the lecturer in addition to recommended textbooks (such as for instance slides, lecture notes, exercises, bibliography) and communications from the lecturer specific to the course can be found inside the Moodle platform › blended.uniurb.it

Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Front lessons and exercises

Innovative teaching methods

Problem-based learning 

Attendance

Class attendance is mandatory.

Knowledge of general chemistry is required.

Course books

BOTTA, CHIMICA ORGANICA ESSENZIALE, EDI-ERMES

Assessment

The exam method is oral, the test has an average duration of approximately 30 minutes. During the interview the teacher verifies the ability to interconnect the topics covered during the course. The oral test is judged with a mark out of thirty taking into account the 5 Dublin indicators (D1, D2, D3, D4, D5).

Disability and Specific Learning Disorders (SLD)

Students who have registered their disability certification or SLD certification with the Inclusion and Right to Study Office can request to use conceptual maps (for keywords) during exams.

To this end, it is necessary to send the maps, two weeks before the exam date, to the course instructor, who will verify their compliance with the university guidelines and may request modifications.

Additional Information for Non-Attending Students

Course books

To give non-attending students the opportunity to compensate for what is done during lessons with independent study, the following materials referring to the same contents of the program are indicated in order to promote full understanding:
