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. Also, students will be introduced to organic spectroscopy.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
Course Content (Syllabus)
Interpretation of the fundamental properties of the major classes of organic compounds, a subject divided in the following chapters: Basic concepts of organic spectroscopy. IR, MS, NMR, UV-Vis spectra Conjugate π-systems and circular reactions Aromatic compounds Aromatic substitution reactions Aldehydes and ketones Carboxylic acids and their derivatives α-carbon chemistry. Enols and enolates Amines Biomolecule chemistry (carbohydrates, amino acids, peptides, proteins, lipids, nucleic acids) Laboratory Exercises: Safety rules in the chemical laboratory. Learning the basic techniques of the organic laboratory (recrystallization, distillation, extraction, drying, chromatography, m.p. and b.p. reflux). Conduct simple organic synthesis reactions.
