Learning Outcomes
Students should become familiar with the basic principles of modern organic chemistry and understand their value in the function and reactivity of biomolecules as well as their interaction with small molecules. To this end, the chemistry and properties of the basic classes of organic compounds and biomolecules will be examined and discussed.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
