3. Course contents *

It is the aim of this course to link the obtained basic organic chemistry insight to the courses of medicinal chemistry and farmacognosy of the following year.
Considering that a large amount of currently used drugs and biologically active products are of heterocylic structure, we will investigate the reactivity discussion and to a lesser extent the synthesis methods applicable to these molecules containing nitrogen, oxygen or sulfur as heterocyclic element. Furthermore this insight is integrated with multistep synthesis of selected organic compounds.
