5.353 Late-stage Drug Modification and Selective Delivery
Introduces a strategy used to improve the performance of pharmaceuticals, demonstrating experimental techniques from synthetic organic chemistry and organic materials science. Explores several types of reactions, including free-radical chemistry and metathesis polymerization. Delineates fundamental laboratory techniques including the standard handling of organic and inorganic chemicals. Provides instruction in experimental techniques including purification by acid-base extraction and recrystallization, monitoring of reaction kinetics by UV/Visible spectrophotometry, and identification of product isomers by NMR spectrometry. Satisfies 4 units of Institute Laboratory credit.
