KE 501 Fundamental Chemistry

The aim of the course is to provide the students with knowledge of chemistry at such a level that the acquired knowledge can form the background of advanced studies within chemistry and support related disciplines, e.g. biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, bioinformatics, biomedicine, physics and chemical engineering.

KE 502 Chemistry of the elements and Physical Chemistry

The aim of the course is to provide the students with knowledge of and skills in elementary inorganic chemistry at such a level that this knowledge can support the learning and understanding of subsequent courses included in the studies of chemistry, biology, molecular biology and cell biology. The aim of the exercises part is to provide the students with broad knowledge of the elements’ most important compounds and their reactions, as well as fundamental laboratory skills and skills in report writing. The course aims at making the students familiar with the application of macroscopic thermodynamical concepts to physical-chemical problems to an extent that will enable them to understand and, if necessary, apply a text where thermodynamical reasoning has been applied to such problems. The three laboratory exercises will support the theoretical subjects by illustrating three central topics in practice.

KE 504 Analytic Spectroscopy

After the course, the students are expected to be able to: indentify functional groups and identify which form of spectroscopy being able to detection of a given group; interpret experimental MS, IR and NMR spectra for the indeintification of small, unknown organic molecules by any of the spectroscopical methods or a combination of methods; combine and value larger amounts of spectroscopic data from the different technices for the purpose of structure determination; discuss the validity of a suggested molecular structure based on experimental spectra; solve combined problems on analytical spectroscopy

KE 505 Organic Chemistry

Students will go through the organic chemistry in detail and systematically. Thus, the objective of the course is to provide the students with fundamental knowledge that forms the basis of advanced chemistry courses and completion of a bachelor project within organic chemistry.
Jan Jeppesen, Kent Nielsen, Karina R. Larsen and Carsten Johnsen.

KE 506 Synthesis

The aim of the course is to give the students a detailed knowledge about common operations used in a synthetic laboratory. Thus, the objective of the course is to provide the students with fundamental knowledge that forms the basis for the completion of a bachelor project within synthetic chemistry.

KE 521 Chemistry of the elements

The aim of the course is to provide the students with knowledge of and skills in elementary inorganic chemistry at such a level that this knowledge can support the learning and understanding of subsequent courses included in the studies of chemistry, biology, molecular biology and cell biology. The aim of the laboratory part is to provide the students with broad knowledge of the elements’ most important compounds and their reactions, as well as fundamental laboratory skills and skills in report writing.

KE 802 Nanobioscience Technology

A new experimental post BS course in the nanobioscience program which focuses on making the students familiar with the state of the art laboratory methods and technologies.
Contact: Martin Hanczyc and Pierre-Alain Monnard.

KE 810 Bioinorganic Chemistry

A reading course in biological inorganic chemistry covering diverse topics from the essential role of metal catalysts in modern living systems, plausible prebiotic chemistries, as well as artificial living system.
Contact: Martin Hanczyc and Pierre-Alain Monnard.

KE 819 Assembling minimal living systems

An interdisciplinary course meant for students with a background in chemists, physics, nanobioscience or robotics/computer engineering. Overview of the main approaches to assemble minimal living systems with selected examples from current research activities. The course is conducted with lectures, demos, wet- and computer labs as well as written exercises. The course is taught in english. Main teachers: Pierre-Alain Monnard, Martin Hanczyc and Steen Rasmussen.
