The aim of the course is to provide the students with the intellectual tools necessary to understand the chemistry of organic and biological molecules by describing their molecular structures, reactivity, and physico-chemical characteristics.
- Structure and properties of the main functional groups, and their main reactivity.
- Acidity and basicity in organic chemistry. Definitions according to Lewis and Broensted. Relative strength of acids and bases: effect of the structure on acidity.
- Conformational analysis and molecular mechanics programs.
- Stereochemistry: chirality, isomerism, symmetry and equivalence, asymmetry. Diastereomeric, enantiomeric, and meso compounds.
- Carbohydrates: classification and configuration, mutarotation. Disaccharides and polysaccharides of biological interest.
- Lipids: most relevant compounds and physico-chemical characteristics. Membrane models.
- Aminoacids: structure, isoelectric point. Peptides and proteins: physico-chemical properties.
- Nucleic acids: nucleosides, nucleotides, DNA, RNA.
The student will need to take a written and an oral test.
