The aims of this module are to enable students to . . . • appreciate the central role of inorganic, physical and organic chemistry in the determination of molecular structure; • to develop the ability to predict molecular reactivity from the basis of a structural understanding; • to understand the chemistry associated with the key organic functional groups that are present in biologically active molecules. Learning Outcomes Knowledge and Understanding: Successful students will be able to: • • • • • describe spectroscopy and its role in structure determination demonstrate a knowledge of kinetic and thermodynamics describe the structures of organic and inorganic molecules demonstrate a knowledge of periodicity and basic inorganic chemistry describe the chemistry of alkenes, alkanes, halides; carbonyls, amines, alcohols, ethers, sulfides and the benzene aromatics
