Faculties and centres
This course intends that students acquire a general knowledge of organic chemistry in the industry, necessary for their proper training as a chemist. In the first place, a comprehensive review of organic compounds having industrial interest will be presented, as well as their large-scale preparation and subsequent uses following a logical order by functional groups. Secondly a study of the most important types of industries in the area of ¿¿organic chemistry, its peculiarities, way of working and the most important products they develop will be held. Student must apply prior knowledge on reactivity of functional groups in organic molecules, nomenclature, reactions in which they participate and the operating mechanisms. They must also demonstrate their ability to apply the concepts, principles and theories in which organic chemistry is based to solve the most common problems encountered in the industrial synthesis of organic compounds. Particular attention to safety issues and the environment in the synthesis of compounds on an industrial scale will be provided. Finally, it is intended that students manage to study and plan their activities individually and in groups.
