Design of Molecules and Macromolecules (6 points)


Leader: Dr Robert Lyall

Gippsland Second semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: In this unit students will study the structure, synthesis and analysis of important industrial and biological compounds. Specific topics will include a study of the reactions of small organic compounds which forms the basis for producing larger molecules and macromolecules (including polymers and biochemicals), the chemistry and structure of coordination complexes and the structure and importance of organometallic complexes in biochemistry. An important component is the experimental program which will emphasise practical applications and the use of spectroscopic and chromatographic methods of analysis.
