This includes DNA, RNA, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins drugs and poisons. This course introduces you to the structure and reactivity of organic molecules in sufficient detail to better understand biochemistry as well as predict reactivity and synthetic pathways. The practical component demonstrates hands on synthesis, purification and identification of organic compounds.
