Carbonyls and Amines

  • Description

About this Course

About the Course

In this course, Dr Danny Allwood (Sheffield Hallam University) introduces two closely related types of organic compounds: carbonyls and amines. Carbonyls and amines are used widely in industry, biology, and research, so it is crucial to understand their chemical properties. We begin by (i) naming and defining the chemicals and reactions we need to know related to carbonyls and amines; (ii) the structures, properties, and reactions of aldehydes and ketones; (iii) the structures, properties and reactions of carboxylic acids and esters; (iv) the structures, properties and reactions of acyl chlorides and amides; and finally (v) amines.

About the Lecturer

Dr Danny Allwood joined Sheffield Hallam University from the University of Cambridge, where he undertook a PhD (2008-2012) and post-doctoral research (2012-2015) with Professor Steven V. Ley CBE FRS. Prior to this, he attained my undergraduate degree at the University of Warwick (2004-2008). His current research programme is focused on the development of practical synthetic and catalytic organic transformations.
