3. Course contents *

The course Natural product & Tandem Chemistry gives a detailed overview of the fundamental classes of natural products in relation to modern developments in tandem and multicomponent synthesis. Not only the basic structural and physical properties, but also synthetic aspects and biosynthesis are a major part of this course. Furthermore, the role of natural products in biological studies and pharmaceutical development will be discussed. Major biosynthesis pathways are discussed from an organic chemistry viewpoint. Furthermore, the state-of-the-art in tandem and multicomponent synthesis will be discussed in relation to diversity and complexity generating synthesis strategies. The course will highlight the relation between biosynthesis routes and tandem chemistry.
