AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to provide students with an overview of natural compounds involved in key biological processes, along with some aspects of their chemical behavior. Will then be provided notions on chemical synthesis of the main natural polymers through the techniques of solid phase and on the application of natural macromolecules in organic synthesis. Finally notions will be given on the use of databases to search for chemical and biological properties of organic substances.

Exam description

Oral.

Assessment methods

Oral examination. It is always conducted by two faculty members (or in limited cases as a tenured professor and a fellow with at least 5 years of postgraduate research experience) and has a duration of at least 30 minutes. With these modes, because at least one of the two teachers has many years of experience of examinations in the discipline, the commission is able to verify with high accuracy to achieve the educational objectives of teaching. When these are not met, the student is invited to deepen the study and to use further explanation by the lecturer.
