The aim of the course is to acquire the main concepts of General Chemistry and basics of Inorganic and Organic Chemistry. The course is divided into two modules: Elements of General Chemistry and Elements of Organic Chemistry, which are detailed below.
Module Elements of General Chemistry: This module introduces the basics and foundations of Gen-eral Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry. At the end of the course the students will be able to solve problems regarding the General Chemistry, showing good reasoning skills and ability in the connec-tion of different concepts. The course will also provide the students with basic know how necessary to attend other courses such as Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry.
Module Elementsi of Organic Chemistry: This module presents the conceptual bases to provide the student with the basics of organic chemistry. Knowledge of organic compounds and their reactivity is the basis for dealing with advanced topics for the comprehension of biological and biomolecular phe-nomena. At the end of the course, the student will have to demonstrate the ability to deal with the structures and the chemical properties and typical reactions of the organic molecules and must be able to apply such knowledge to describe the reaction mechanisms. The basic concepts learned du-ring the course will provide students with the tools of molecular interpretation of the organization of biological systems.
