Course description

Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2021-22

In this subjet an overview of organic chemistry will be given to students. They would be able of relate the basic principles and general characteristics of reactivity of different functional groups with their properties and structure. Likewise,  the basic principles of polymer chemistry, classification and various forms and polymerization mechanisms will be presented
