Syllabus
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of chemistry. Electronic configurations of the elements. Atomic orbitals. Molecular orbitals. Electronegativity. Covalent bonds. Intermolecular bonds. Acids and bases.
Target skills and knowledge: Give basic information useful for the comprehension and the rationalization of the design, production and utilization of the organic molecules and materials.
Examination methods: Two written in-course tests (10 quizzes and 2 questions) with an oral test.
The score of the written exam will be calculated as media of the scores of the two in-course tests.
For the following appeals the written part will consists in 10 quizzes and 4 questions followed by an oral test.
Assessment criteria: Evaluation based on the following criteria:
1. Understanding the reactivity of organic compounds.
2. Ability to analyze, classify, predict physical and chemical properties of organic molecules.
3. Knowledge of nomenclature and uses of organic compounds.
4. Completeness of the acquired knowledge.
5. Terminological property.
Course unit contents: Structure and reactivity of organic molecules. Isomerism. Aliphatic hydrocarbons: alkanes, cycloalkanes, alkenes, alkynes, and dienes. Aromatic hydrocarbons: benzene and arenes. Alkyl halides. Alcohols. Ethers and epoxides. Aldehydes and Ketones. Carboxylic acids and their derivatives: amides, esters, anhydrides, acyl halides. Synthetic polymers. Primary, secondary and tertiary structure of proteins. Ionic equilibria. Ramachandran plot. Interactions that stabilize secondary, tertiary and quaternary structures. Denaturation. Sequencing and analysis of amino acids. Carbohydrates: monosaccharides, disaccharides and polysaccharides. Emiacetals and acetals. Glycoconjugates. Lipids: fatty acids, fats, waxes and lipids that form membranes. Nucleic acids: DNA and RNA. Replication, transcription and translation.
