Assumed knowledge on:

Secondary school (VWO) chemistry

Contents:

Organic chemistry is fundamental to chemistry and to all sciences working with molecules. Starting point are the molecules of life, which are relevant for biosystems engineneering.  The strucure and reactivity of these molecules are discussed. As well as basic concepts and reaction mechanisms.

Learning outcomes:

After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
- understand and apply common concepts in organic chemistry;
- recognize structure and understand reactivity of different classes of organic compounds;
- identify and apply basic organic chemical reactions and reaction mechanisms;
- apply basic knowledge on biomolecules such as carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids;




Activities:

Study the textbook following the presented study guide. During the tutorials questions from the reader are exercised and discussed with the teacher.

Examination:

Written examination (100%)



Literature:

Chemistry for biosciences , third edition or newer (Crowe and Bradshaw)
