Research in organic chemistry at MIT addresses a broad spectrum of important problems of current interest and includes investigations at the frontier of bioorganic chemistry, organic synthesis, and materials science. Specific areas of research include protein glycosylation and protein design, chemosensors, continuous flow synthesis, liquid crystals, supramolecular catalysis, the design of new organometallic reagents and catalysts, the invention of new methods for asymmetric catalysis, engineering and pharmaceutical manufacturing, and the development of new strategies for the total synthesis of a wide array of biologically important natural products. A central theme in many projects is the study of structure-reactivity relationships of biological, organic, and organometallic molecules. Much of the current research in the department takes place at the interface of organic chemistry with other areas such as biology, medicine, materials science, and nanotechnology.
All Organic Chemistry Trivia Quizzes and Games - Sporcle
The following problems are meant to be useful study tools for studentsinvolved in most undergraduate organic chemistry courses. The problemshave been color-coded to indicate whether they are:
Design of transition and rare earth metal compounds with conducting and magnetic properties. Applications of supramolecular chemistry of anions and organic radicals in the design of functional materials and drugs. Anticancer properties of photochemically activated metal drug complexes for photodynamic therapy. Metal-metal bonded complexes as solar photochemical and electrochemical catalysts for water and carbon dioxide reduction.
The journal is essential reading to all synthetic organic chemists
Answers to each of these questions fall within the realm of a field known as organicchemistry. For more than 200 years, chemists have divided materials into twocategories. Those isolated from plants and animals were classified as organic,while those that trace back to minerals were inorganic. At one time, chemistsbelieved that organic compounds were fundamentally different from those that wereinorganic because organic compounds contained a vital force that was onlyfound in living systems.
Looking for books on Organic Chemistry
(Conjoined with Chem 156.) Introduction to the measurement and theoretical correlation of the physical properties of organic molecules. Topics covered include molecular geometry, molecular-orbital theory, orbital hybridization, aromaticity, chemical reactivity, stereochemistry, infrared and electronic spectra, photochemistry, and nuclear magnetic resonance. Chem 256 students will be required to complete an additional paper and/or exam beyond that expected of students in Chem 156. Prerequisites: Chem 140C or 140CH (156), or graduate standing (256).
Organic Division Information - UW-Madison Chemistry
(Conjoined with Chem 157.) A comprehensive survey of modern bioorganic and natural products chemistry. Topics include biosynthesis of natural products, molecular recognition, and small molecule-biomolecule interactions. Chem 257 students will be required to complete additional course work beyond that expected of students in Chem 157. Prerequisites: Chem 140C or 140CH (157), or graduate standing (257).
