Learning outcomes
Organic Chemistry Module (6 credits):
The aim of this module is to provide the basic knowledge to rationalise shapes, structures and reactivity of organic molecules.

Laboratory of Organic Chemistry Module (3 credits):
The laboratory module aims to provide students with the practical knowledge of basic organic chemistry through experimental laboratory activities.
Course contents
Organic Chemistry Module (6 credits):
1) Chemical bonding. 2) Covalent bonding in organic chemistry. 3) Organic acids and bases. 4) Stereochemistry, structures and properties of alkanes, alkenes, and cycloalkanes. 5) Reaction mechanisms and intermediates. 6) Reactivity of alkanes, alkenes. 7) Alkyl halides. 8) Alcohols. 9) Ethers, thiols and oxiranes. 10) Amines. 11) Ketones and aldehydes. 12) Carboxylic acids and derivatives 13) Lipids. 14) Aromatic compounds. 15) Generation and reactivity of enols and enolates.

Laboratory of Organic Chemistry Module (3 credits):
The activities in the laboratory will apply the basic methods for the isolation (crystallization and distillation), purification (chromatographic techniques), the analysis and transformation of organic compounds through the interconversion of functional groups. We will also provide the knowledge related to safety in the laboratory.
