Overview of strategies entailed in synthesis of organic compounds, including retro-synthetic analysis, use of synthons, 'green' routes, solid phase synthesis, asymmetric synthesis, stereo- and regio-selective synthesis, role of organo-metallics, and how to use the literature. Laboratory work introduces various advanced synthetic procedures and gives experience in devising a multistage synthesis of a target molecule. Labs may involve off-site visits.
