Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

General Chemistry

Intended learning outcomes

The course provides fundamental knowledge in basic organic chemistry: After studies well learned the student will able to:

  • apply the rules for nomenclature of organic compounds.
  • describe different functional groups in organic chemistry.
  • understand basic transformations and reaction mechanisms.
  • use elementary organic laboratory techniques.

 

Course content

The course include nomenclature, structure and physical properties of most common substances representing different functional groups. Basic transformations and stereochemistry. Biomolecules. Laboration in organic chemistry.

Teaching and working methods

Theoretical aspects are daily presented in lectures. Problem solving is studied during lessons. In the laboratory the students are trained in elementary organic chemical laboratory techniques.
