Changes in the course due to coronavirus

Autumn 2020 the exams of most courses at the MN Faculty will be conducted as digital home exams or oral exams, using the normal grading scale. The semester page for your course will be updated with any changes in the form of examination.

See general guidelines for examination at the MN Faculty autumn 2020.

Course content

The subject is an advanced course in organic chemistry emphazing the chemistry of heterocyclic compounds. The subject is suitable for master students in organic chemistry and related areas.

Learning outcome

After completion of the course you will

  • be familiar with the structures of important classes of heterocyclic aromatic organic compounds
  • be able to classify simple heterocyclic aromatic compounds as electron deficient or electron rich and explain their reactivity based on these properties
  • know how selected organometallic reactions can be applied in heterocyclic chemistry
  • be able to explain on a mechanistic level, reactions and synthesis of important nitrogen containing electron deficient heterocycles; pyridines, diazines and their benzo-condenced analogs
  • be able to explain on a mechanistic level, reactions and synthesis of important oxygen containing electron deficient heterocycles; pyrilium and benzopyrilium ions, pyrones and benzopyrones.
  • be able to explain on a mechanistic level, reactions and synthesis of important electron rich heterocycles; furans, pyrroles and thiophenes and 1,3-azoles, and benzo-condenced analogs
  • be able to explain on a mechanistic level, reactions and synthesis of purines

Admission to the course

PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.

If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.

PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.
