This topic is designed to provide the fundamentals of acid/base (buffer) chemistry, electrochemistry and organic chemistry in a biological context for students of the life sciences.
The topic deals with chemical equilibrium, the pH scale, iconic equilibria, buffer solutions, redox reactions and electrochemical cells, electrolysis, organic chemistry of aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, compounds having other important functional groups, amino acids, carbohydrates and DNA and the fundamentals of biological mechanisms. The basics of analysis and chromotography are also covered.
This topic aims to provide students primarily from the life sciences with a chemistry background enough information to be able to continue studies in chemistry and to assist in other topics offered in the university.
