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 2013 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 designed for students enrolled in the Bachelor of Veterinary Science program. Students who have not undertaken an HSC Chemistry course are strongly advised to attend the Chemistry Bridging Course. 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 78 hours of teaching. It contains some continuous assessment and concludes with an examination.
