CM3533: CHEMISTRY FOR STUDENTS OF PHYSICAL SCIENCE (III) (2019-2020)

Last modified: 2 Days, 4 Hours, 34 Minutes ago


Course Overview

This course introduces important fundamentals of organic chemistry via a series of lectures, tutorials and laboratory experiments. Students will gain a firm grounding in NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry which are vital analytical tools to determine if the correct organic molecule has been synthesised. Organic synthesis lectures will concentrate on pericyclic reactions. Biological chemistry such as an introduction to DNA/RNA will also be discussed.
