Lesson timetable

Learning outcomes

The course is aimed to provide students with the basic organic chemistry which will be needed to understand the fundamental processes of biochemistry. An important goal of the course is also to introduce the first year students to the scientific method, so that molecules behaviour and reaction mechanisms can be deduced from the knowledge of acidic-basic and other physical properties. The course is specifically tailored to biotechnology students as the highest attention will be dedicated to the organic chemistry of biological systems.

Syllabus

Structure and bonding in organic molecules
Intermolecular forces
Funtional-group approach
Stereoisomerism
Conformational analysis
Introduction to the physical-organic chemistry
Acidic-basic properties of organic molecules
Principal reaction mechanisms
Organic chemistry of compounds of biological interest:carbohydrates, peptides, proteins, lipids, nucleic acids

Assessment methods and criteria

The students will pass a written examination, aiming at verifying the knowledge and comprehension of the basic principles of organic chemistry in addition to the capability to solve problems dealing with subjects treated during the course
