Mode of delivery, planned learning activities and teaching methods:
lecture2 hours weekly (on-site method)
1 hour weekly (on-site method)

Credits allocated:
Recommended semester/trimester: Technical Chemistry - master (semi-compulsory), 2. semester
Level of study:
Prerequisites for registration:
Assesment methods:
The exam consists of a written test and an oral test for 50 points. To successfully passing the exam, the student must achieve at least 28 points.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The subject builds on the knowledge acquired in the course "Mechanisms of Organic Chemistry I" and provides an explicatory analysis of mechanisms of organic reactions, taking into account also electronic and steric factors. Knowledge of reactivity of organic compounds helps students to understand a large number of so far known reactions.
Course contents:
Relationship between structure and reactivity of organic molecules. Methods of study of organic reaction mechanisms. Nucleophilic substitution on carboxylic acid derivatives. Addition of nucleophiles to heterocumulens and carbonyl compounds. Acetals. Structure and reactivity of ylids. Wittig and related reactions. Reduction and oxidation.
