5.363 Organic Structure Determination


Class Info

Introduces modern methods for the elucidation of the structure of organic compounds. Students carry out transition metal-catalyzed coupling reactions, based on chemistry developed in the Buchwald laboratory, using reactants of unknown structure. Students also perform full spectroscopic characterization - by proton and carbon NMR, IR, and mass spectrometry of the reactants - and carry out coupling products in order to identify the structures of each compound. Other techniques include transfer and manipulation of organic and organometallic reagents and compounds, separation by extraction, and purification by column chromatography. Satisfies 4 units of Institute Laboratory credit.

This class has 5.12 as a prerequisite. This class has 5.13 as a corequisite.

5.363 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by J. Van Humbeck and R. L. Danheiser.

Lecture occurs 12:00 PM to 13:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-231.

This class counts for a total of 4 credits.
