Course content
Structure, Formulas and Nomenclature of Organic Compounds: Graphic Representations and Nomenclature (trivial and IUPAC). Hydrocarbons: alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, aromatics. Nomenclature, phys-chem. properties and chemical reactions, hydrocarbons as natural substances, Functional groups: Halogenated compounds. Oxygen, nitrogen and sulfur derivatives, organometallic compounds, phys-chem. properties, reaction of individual functional groups, production and significance of derivatives, their occurrence and importance in nature: Carbohydrates: Structure and properties of monosaccharides; Disaccharides; polysaccharides, carbohydrate derivatives. Lipids: Structure and properties. Esters and other lipids, phospholipids, sphingolipids, biomembranes. Steroids: Structure of Steroids; Sterols; Bile acids; Steroid hormones; Cardiotonic steroids; Amino acids, biologically important amines. Peptides. Proteins. Nucleotides and nucleosides, RNA and DNA. UV-VIS spectroscopy, IR and Raman spectroscopy, MS spectrometry, NMR spectroscopy Main database of organic compounds, main software for working with formulas and structures, database of metabolic pathways. After passing of the practicals, the relationship between the spectrum, structure and interactions of substances is understood

  • Class attendance - 102 hours per semester
Learning outcomes
The aim of lectures in Chemistry II is to provide students with an overview of the following topics: 1) Nomenclature of organic compounds, structure of organic compounds and their principles, main chemical reactions of individual groups of substances, 2) Software for drawing, displaying and optimizing of chemical structures, databases of organic compounds, databases of metabolic pathways, basics of work with profesional literature 3) Main types of spectroscopy in organic chemistry and the relationship between structure and spectrum. In the framework of practical exercises: a) Students who have not completed extensive laboratory work in the previous study will acquire the principles of working with laboratory techniques in a chemical laboratory, b) all students undergo exercises to illustrate the relationship between the structure of the molecule, its interactions and the degree of ionization and the spectrum in the UV and visible areas
Graduates will achieve basic knowledge in the subject of physico-chemical properties of organic compounds, they will be familiar with systematical and trivial nomenclature and due to practical excercises in laboratory the absolvents will gain elementary skills in the field of laboratory research. Absolvents will get on necessary theoretical and practical background for the follow-up chemistry-based courses in Hydrochemistry and Biochemistry.
Prerequisites
This course is continuation of general and inorganic chemistry course ( Chemistry I), thus the pre-requisite is to pass the course Chemistry I.
