S. No / Section Topic Learning Objective (At the end of the session the students should be able to) Teaching Guidelines Methodology Hours
A

 

Structure and Bonding :

1.       Localized  and  delocalized  chemical   bond,

2.        van  der  Waals interactions, resonance: conditions, resonance effect and its applications.

3.       Hyper conjugation, inductive effect,  Electromeric  effect & their  comparison.

At the end of the training / teaching students must be able demostrate the difference between Localized  and  delocalized  chemical   bond. At the end of the training / teaching students must be able reproduce the resonating structure and must perform Hyper conjugation, inductive effect,  Electromeric  effect in the organic molecules. Structure and Bonding be discussed by taking both simple as well difficulty examples to the students. Hyper conjugation, inductive effect,  Electromeric  effect & their  comparison must be discussed by giving two / three examples. White Board- Marker Pen.

Stereochemistry-I :

1.       Conceptof       Isomerism. Types of isomerism. Optical isomerism , elements of symmetry.

2.       Molecular  chirality, enantiomers, stereogenic centre, optical  activity.

3.       Properties  of  enantiomers, chiral and achiral molecules with two stereogenic centres,

4.       diastereomers, threo and erythro diastereomers, mesocompounds,

5.       Resolution  of  enantiomers,  inversion,  retention  and racemization.

Stereochemistry of Organic Compounds-II :

6.       Relative and absolute configuration, sequence rules, R&S systems of nomenclature. Geometric isomerism,

7.       Determination of   configuration of geometric isomers .E&Z system of nomenclature,

8.       Conformational isomerism, confirmational analysis of ethane and n-butane, conformations of cyclohexane, axial and equatorial bonds,.

9.       Newman  projection and  Sawhorse  formulae, Difference between configuration and conformation.

At the end of the training / teaching students must be able reproduce the concepts of isomerism and perform Molecular  chirality, enantiomers, stereogenic centre, optical  activity. At the end of the training / teaching students must be able demonstrate  Properties  of  enantiomers, chiral and achiral molecules with two stereogenic centres,

diastereomers, threo and  erythro diastereomers, mesocompounds. At the end of the training / teaching students must be able to resolution  of  enantiomers,  inversion,  retention  and racemization. At the end of the training / teaching students must be able to reproduce Relative and absolute configuration, sequence rules, R&S systems of nomenclature. Geometric isomerism, E&Z system of nomenclature, Conformational isomerism, confirmational analysis of ethane and n-butane, conformations of cyclohexane, axial and equatorial bonds, Newman  projection and  Sawhorse  formulae, Difference between configuration and conformation

 

Concepts of Stereochemistry be discussed from the very begning taking simple to difficult examples. The difference between various terms used in stereochemistry be made clear to students by explaining number of examples. All the stereochemistry concepts must be explained  using simple as  well as difficult examples. White Board- Marker Pen, PBL, SIS, Tutorials, Video, Audio, Models, Lab Visits, Teacher Seminar 18

Mechanism of Organic Reactions :

1.       Curved arrow notation, drawing electron movements with arrows, half-headed and double-headed   arrows,

2.       Homolytic and heterolytic bond breaking. Types of reagents – electrophiles and  nucleophiles.

·         Types of organic reactions. Energy considerations. Reactive intermediates, carbocations, carbanions,

3.       Freeradicals, carbenes, arynes and nitrenes (formation, structure & stability).

4.       Assigning formal charges on intermediates and other ionic species

 

At the end of the training / teaching students must be able to reproduce basic concepts of mechanism of  organic reactions such as Curved arrow notation, drawing electron movements with arrows, half-headed and double-headed   arrows, Homolytic and heterolytic bond breaking. Types of reagents – electrophiles and  nucleophiles, Homolytic and heterolytic bond breaking. Types of reagents – electrophiles and  nucleophiles, Freeradicals, carbenes, arynes and nitrenes. Basic concepts of mechanism of  reaction be  made clear using effective examples  given in good books. Difference between various type of  reactive species be made clear to the students by high lighting  important examples.
