At the end of the course, the student is expected to acquire knowledge and understanding of basic organic chemistry.
In particular, the expected learning outcomes are:
1. Knowledge and understanding of the main functional groups and applying them to the classification of simple organic molecules;
2. Knowledge, understanding and applying the structural representation of simple organic molecules to visualize them as objects in the three-dimensional space;
3. Knowledge and understanding of basic principles of organic reactions (chemical equilibria, structural theory, acids and bases, nucleophiles and electrophiles);
4. Knowledge and understanding of the relationship between the structure of simple organic molecules and their physical properties, in particular their solubility in aqueous or non-aqueous solvents;
5. Knowledge and understanding of the relationship between the structure of simple organic molecules and their reactivity;
6. Knowledge and understanding of methods for functional group interconversion and applying them to simple manipulations of organic molecules;
7. Knowledge of the international rules for the nomenclature of organic compounds and applying them to unknown molecules, also solving simple exercises;
8. Communication skills of the course contents to specialized and non-specialized audience;
9. Understanding of the importance of organic chemistry in the study of biochemical and biological processes underlying the animal production sciences.
