CH4104 Important Perspectives of Organic Chemistry Sanjio S. Zade

Designing the synthesis based on retrosynthetic analysis
A disconnection approach to the synthesis of organic compound. Different consideration in designing target molecule, concept of synthons, functional group interconversion, chemoselectivity, regioselectivity, specificity, stereoselectivity, general strategy choosing a disconnection, types of bond disconnection, linear v/s convergent synthesis. Illustration of concepts through the synthesis of important targets.
