Year 2
Semester S1
ECTS Credits 6
Workload PL(30H)/T(30H)
Scientific area Chemistry
Mode of delivery Face-to-face with recourse to e-learning
Learning outcomes This course unit aims to teach the basic knowledge to classify the main types of reactions in organic chemistry and its understanding through its mechanism. At the end of the course unit the student should be able to combine the basic knowledge learned with an adequate bibliographic support, in order to predict the chemical behavior of compounds possessing the main functional groups and therefore to allow the development of his/her skills to identify, design and produce raw-materials and drugs. Should also be able to recognize the necessity to maintain a constant self-leaning based on the collection, analysis and organization of the information on pharmaceutical sciences, and to be able to communicate and discuss it in a valuable way. The student must also possess a set of experimental skills in organic chemistry.
