Assumed knowledge on:

Basic knowledge of chemistry on a level of several years secondary school.

Continuation courses:

ORC-13803 Bio-organic Chemistry for Life Sciences.


The course refreshes the basic knowledge of organic chemistry needed for Bio-organic Chemistry for Life Sciences (ORC-13803). The course is given parallel to ORC-13803 and prepares students for each tutorial.

Learning outcomes:

After this course, the student is expected to have the knowledge and skills to:

- recognize different classes of organic compounds;

- draw organic molecules and give them a IUPAC name;

- predict the chemical properties of organic compounds (e.g. polarity, acidity, melting/boiling point, reactivity);

- describe simple organic chemical reactions.


- participate in lectures;

- tutorials and doing exercises.


Not applicable.


Chemistry books on a secondary-school level.
