Course Description

Suitable for: graduates in chemistry or a related discipline (eg chemical engineering, physics, pharmacy, pharmacology and biochemistry). Offers knowledge and expertise: in the physical aspects of organic chemistry and their applications in situations such as organic synthesis, chemical biology, green chemistry, catalysis, materials science and alternative energy research. Course Description: The course will train students in the scientific approach employed in physical organic chemistry, involving the combined use of different techniques, such as theory, computational science, mechanistic analysis, organic synthesis and a variety of instrument-based techniques. This combined approach can then be applied to solve problems through a quantitative understanding of key processes. Students will gain a feel for the potential applications of the techniques and approaches of physical organic chemistry, applying this knowledge to developing a quantitative understanding of reactions and proposing potential improvements to existing processes in organic chemistry, biology, biosynthesis, environmental and green processes. Special features of this course: ? There will be an opportunity for students to undertake a short research project applying the skills acquired through the taught modules. ? The course will provide opportunities for students to develop key skills including learning skills, information handling, (quantitative) data analysis, presentational skills and critical analysis.
