CHEM-373 is a detailed study about the reaction mechanism of different organic reactions and different methods of their determination. It is designed to give the knowledge of reaction mechanism of all different types of reactions to Chemistry students at an advance level. Course includes the comprehensive study on the mechanism of different types of substitution, addition and elimination reactions with emphasis on their determination. The course will also provide a detailed mechanistic study of all above mentioned reactions. The course also provides detailed mechanistic study about the active methylene compounds. It gives an insight about their applications in the field of Organic synthetic Chemistry.
