Introduction Oximes are the chemical compounds belonging to imines class. They are generally classified into aldoxime and ketoxime. Aldoxime have one alkyl group while ketoxime have two alkyl groups as side chains. Another type of oxime is called as amidoxime where carbon as one nitrogen as oxime and one disubstituted nitrogen atom. Victor Meyer, a german […]
Spectroscopy Spectroscopy is the study of interaction between matter and electromagnetic radiation. Spectroscopic techniques are widely used for the structure elucidation of the compounds in organic chemistry. Techniques of Spectroscopy Infrared (IR): use to determination of Functional group Ultra violet (UV): use to determination of visible spectroscopy,, degree of unsaturation. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR): use to determination of […]
Different Aspects of Organic Synthesis The drive to improve the efficiency of the drug discovery process has created the need for rapid compound synthesis and efficient methods for screening compounds for biological activity. The fields of combinatorial chemistry and high-throughput screening matured during the early 1990s to meet the challenges of modern pharmaceutical research. Solid-phase […]
Introduction At the dawn of the twenty-first century, the state of the art and science of organic synthesis is as healthy and vigorous is as ever. The birth of this exhilarating, multifaceted, and boundless science is marked by Wohler’s synthesis of urea in 1828. This milestone event – as trivial as it may seem by […]
