Learning Outcomes
Aims of the course: The objective of the present course is to establish an interactive approach in determining the structure of a new chemical entity. It is addressing postgraduate Pharmacy students in the teaching cycle of their studies and, therefore, it is prerequisite for their scientific evolvement. Skills: The present course will establish the thesis that the postgraduate Pharmacy should be able to use the central principles of spectroscopy in determining the structure of organic molecules. The analysis of the spectrometric data of organic molecules teaches something more than just structural analytical chemistryorganic synthesis – it teaches analytical intelligence as well.

Course Content (Syllabus)
Utilization of spectrometric, chromatographic, computational, and other relevant techniques in order to determine the structure or to isolate molecules of pharmaceutical interest.
Use of Information and Communication Technologies
Use of ICT
  • Use of ICT in Course Teaching
  • Use of ICT in Communication with Students
The lectures of the course are based either on the classical chalk and a blackboard method with occasional use of slides or power point. There is also the possibility of communication and exchange of tutorials via e-mail

Student Assessment
The evaluation of knowledge and skills which have been acquitted by the students from the course work is attested with either written examinations or presentation of homework (bibliographic or solution of composite problems) which are conducted in a fixed date. The written examinations consist of approximately ten (10) composite questions spherically covering the tough subjects. The students are asked to answer based on their knowledge obtained from the lectures as well as on the critical thinking and ability to combine, evaluate and handle the acquired knowledge and information. Grading is proportionally allocated to the tutors. The written examinations have duration of 3 hours.
Student Assessment methods
  • Written Exam with Short Answer Questions (Summative)
  • Written Assignment (Summative)
