OVERVIEW

Study of chemical and chemical-physical basic of technologies, with particular reference to materials, properties and interaction with the environment, providing a synthesis of common principles of state and transformation of matter.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

To supply a basic chemical culture, required to describe the thermodynamic and kinetic in the organic reactions of hydrocarbons and common functional groups.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The training activities proposed in the form of lectures and exercises, associated to the individual study, will allow the student to:

understand the structure and the reactivity of coordination compounds;

know the organic nomenclature and the different isomersisms;

understand the reaction mechanisms of organic compounds;

know the structure of lipids, carbohydrates and proteins;

know the classification of polymeric materials and understand their structure;

know the fundamentals of the main instrumental analytical methods and understand the results;

discuss all the proposed activities with a scientific method and appropriate language.

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures and exercises in the classroom. The assessment of learning and operational skills during the course will take place through the monitoring carried out during the exercises.

The transversal skills in terms of independence of judgment will be acquired through the classroom performance of the exercises to be carried out in a group.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Electronic models of coordination compounds. Coordination and surface chemistry. Bio-inorganic compounds. Semiconductors for LED and photocatalysis.

Structure and nomenclature of organic compounds. Functional, chain, position and geometric isomerism. Stereoisomery. Tautomerism. Conformation and configuration. Overview of some relationships between physical properties and structure of organic compounds. Homolytic (radical) and heterolytic reactions. Chain reactions.

LESSONS

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures and exercises in the classroom. The assessment of learning and operational skills during the course will take place through the monitoring carried out during the exercises.

The transversal skills in terms of independence of judgment will be acquired through the classroom performance of the exercises to be carried out in a group.

Class schedule

All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

The exam includes only an oral test. This is structured on 3 questions of equivalent weight for evaluation purposes. The first related to the reaction mechanisms, the second on the synthesis of an organic molecule in accordance with the reactions studied during the teaching module and the third on one of the monographic topics treated.

The detailed description of the modalities and the topics of examination are available in Aulaweb.

There are no limitations to the number of sustainable tests in the two exam sessions.

The grade obtained in the teaching will be the average of the marks given in the two modules in which the teaching is divided.

ASSESSMENT METHODS

The cognitive interview with the student will allow:

verify the ability to develop an electronic model for the structure of coordination compounds;

evaluate knowledge of the reactivity of the coordination compounds;

evaluate the knowledge of organic nomenclature and of different isomers;

verify the ability to model the mechanisms of the organic reaction.

evaluate the knowledge of the behavior of molecules of industrial interest such as saccharides, proteins, lipids and synthetic polymers; or description of an analytical methodology between UV-Vis spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy, gas chromatography, mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance.

The quality of the exhibition, the knowledge of the technical terminology, the methodological rigor and the ability to apply the scientific method will be comprehensive part of the evaluation.
