Fine organic chemistry is everywhere, in medicinal products, perfumes, cosmetics, materials, etc. Knowing the bases of organic synthesis is essential for a chemist.

This course is intended for chemists and aims to introduce them to the new reactions used in organic synthesis, for example. This work is applied in the study of major syntheses of biologically active products. These studies additionally constitute a first relative approach to Organic Chemistry synthesis strategies.
