This is an advanced synthesis course designed to train students at the late master's level and at the PhD level. The course will describe and discuss modern tecniques for the synthesis of advanced organic and inorganic small-molecules. The focus of the course is to describe and demonstarte techniques for synthesis rather than the preperation of specific molecules.

Target group

Master and Phd Students
