      The goalThe aim of the subject is to introduce students to the modern reactions of oxidation and reduction in organic chemistry, corresponding catalysts, solvents and other reaction conditions. The individual choice of a complex organic compound for synthesis and the application of the basis synthetic principles on it. The students will become capable of complex synthesis of natural and synthetic organic compounds. ;
      The outcomeThe individual research work in organic synthesis. Successful planning and realization of organic synthesis.
      Contents of lecturesRed-ox reactions of a wide spectrum of organic compounds using modern catalysts combined with other reactants and solvents with the goal to obtain a compound with specific structure and properties. The students are enabled for the individual research work in organic synthesis, and for successful realization of organic synthesis. The students become familiar with detailed synthetic planning, over development of different synthetic reactions, with the aim to obtain a pure product with the highest yield possible, taking special the product's properties also into considerations. The synthesis of a complex compound is individually analyzed through a in independent research work (seminary work).
