A copy of the powerpoint slides projected during class is available on the Université Virtuelle. Students are requested to complete these slides with the information presented during the course.
Organic Chemistry: Structure and Function. Vollhardt and Schore, Freeman and Co. (any of the editions !) - Organic Chemistry. Clayden, Greeves, Warren and Wothers, Oxford University Press (1st or 2nd Ed.) - Organic Chemistry. McMurry, Thomson (7th edition, 2008)
This teaching unit contributes to the following competences:
In-depth knowledge and understanding of exact sciences with the specificity of their application to engineering
Collaborate in a (multidisciplinary) team
The flexibility and adaptability to work in an international and/or intercultural context
An integrated insight in chemical process and materials' technology
Written exam + laboratory reports.
Written exam accounts for 80% of the final grade. The laboratory reports are marked and account for 20% of the final grade.
The understanding of the theoretical concepts will be evaluated as well as the student’s capacity to apply the theory to practical problems.
The practicals illustrate the course content and are an integral part of the material that is evaluated at the exam.

Lectures: 18 hours
Exercises + Practicals: 30 hours
Questions can be answered during the break or after classes. The practicals are a privileged moment for discussions. It is also possible to make an appointment with the teaching staff to ask further questions. Students are encouraged to consult reference text-books. Numerous reference books are available in the library of the "Laboratoire d'Ingénierie des Nanosystèmes Moléculaires" (room P2-2-211).
