Course details: CHEM230 Molecules for Life: Synthesis and Reactivity

Description: Students will build on their repertoire of fundamental reaction types that previously have been encountered, with the introduction of new reactions and their application to more complex molecules of biological and medicinal importance. The laboratory course is an integral component of the course that emphasises preparative chemistry and the use of modern spectroscopic methods for structure determination.
