Courses 2010
Lessons will be taken in february 2010, according to schedules decided between teachers and students.

Fund hunting in chemistry

Professors: P. Mustarelli, G. Zanoni

The aim of the course is to give the knowledge/skills necessary to apply for Chemistry funding projects, in both national and international systems.

Topics discussed:

Finding the funding source
Description of national application form (PRIN, FISR, FIRB, Cariplo) and international (VII PQ fasi 1 e 2, ERC).
How to write the general part (introduction and state of art, bibliographic research methods).
Work Project, Task e sub-task (Gantt diagram), Progress Indicators, Deliverables, Milestones, and Risk Management.
Failure analysis.
The role of Research Office local and nationals.

Each student will develop an application that will be examinated by an experts committee. Final exam will be the defense of the project.

Story of Chemistry. Chemistry between botanic and pharmacy in XVIII and XIX centuries

Docenti: P. Ferloni, G.G. Mellerio, F. Sartori, , A. Visconti

The course will present topics in Story of Chemistry in XVIII and XIX centuries, in particular scientifical fields studied by chemists and the ones investigated by botanic, natural science and pharmacy.

The course is oper to Graduate Students in Chemistry, Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Technologies, Experimental Ecology and Geobotanic.

Chiral transfer in organic synthesis

Professors: G Desimoni, G. Faita

1. Introduction - Nomenclature. Basic stereochemistry concepts.

2. Chiral auxiliares. Several chiral auxiliares will be presented (both mono- and bis-dentate) used in diastereoselective synthesis, focusing on results obtained with DA cycloaddition.

3. Asymmetric Catalysis (AC). AC in organic synthesis. Several families of chiral catalysts will be illustrated, and their applications to benchmark reaction.

4. Use of chiral ligands with bis and tris-oxazoline structure. Starting from different synthesis of ligands, several complexes will be discussed in particular those who have an available X-rays structure. Different kinds of bis-oxazoline will be shown (modifying the spacer between chiral units) and tris-oxazoline used in different asymmetric synthesis. If determined, the catalytical patway will be discussed, and the outcoming product will be assigned through different reaction intermediates.

5. Organocatalysis. The last part of the course will present some basic concepts and principal synthetical application of Organocatalysis. In these systems, the chiral information carrier is an organic molecule without involving any metal cation.
