AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The aim of the course is to provide  knowledge of the structure, reactivity and properties of complex molecules, with a special focus on biomolecules.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course will provide an in-depth knowledge of the structure, reactivity and properties of complex molecules. It is developed through three successive steps: (i) classification and structure of functional groups characterizing the main classes of compounds in organic chemistry and bases on the chemistry of coordination compounds, (ii) reactivity and reaction mechanisms for the conversion of such classes of compounds, iii) description of structure, properties and reactivity of polyfunctional macromolecules of biological and biomedical / technological interest

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Functional groups, IUPAC nomenclature and classifications of main organic compounds. Single bonds: alkanes, alcohols, ethers, amines. Double bonds: alkenes, carbonyl compounds (aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and functional derivatives of carboxylic acids), imines. Triple bonds: alkynes and nitriles. Saturated cyclic compounds: cycloalkanes. Aromatic hydrocarbons: benzene and main derivatives. Organic compounds of nitrogen, sulfur and phosphorus. Properties. Stereochemistry. Main organic reaction mechanisms: nucleophilic substitution, electrophilic addition, elimination, nucleophilic addition, nucleophilic acyl substitution, chemical reactivity of benzene. Synthetic polymers:  polymerisation reactions and structure-property relations. Molecules of biological interest: carbohydrates (monosaccharides, disaccharides, polysaccharides), amino acids and proteins, lipids, DNA and RNA. Coordination complexes.
