CHEM1108

Chemistry 1 Life Sciences A

Note: this unit is no longer available: see our 'which units?' page for help in selecting an appropriate unit of study. This page and the links from it correspond to the 2011 version of the course.

This unit of study offers students an integrated approach to the composition of matter, the shapes of molecules and synthetic and mechanistic organic chemistry. The emphasis is on the molecular basis of materials and transformations in the Life Sciences and is appropriate for students enrolled in the BSc (Nutrition), BSc (Molecular Biotechnology), BSc (Molecular Biology & Genetics) and BMedSc programs. The concepts covered in lectures will be illustrated by work conducted in the laboratories. The laboratory classes also teach some standard research techniques and experimental methodology. The unit carries a credit point value of 6 and consists of approximately 80 hours of teaching. It contains some continuous assessment and concludes with an examination.
Students in the these programme who have not studied Chemistry at HSC level should enrol in CHEM1001 and CHEM1002.
