Learn Chemistry from an expert

This course is designed for researchers who wish to fill gaps in their basic chemistry and see how it relates to drug design and optimisation.
Also first year U/G students within any of the sciences or those with a basic understanding of chemistry but who want to understand how molecules relate to medicinal chemistry can benefit from the content of this course.
If you are a professional in the non-chemical sciences e.g. medicine, this course is also for you.

The main goal of this course is to understand the composition of atoms and the reactivities of the elements and the difference between covalent and ionic bond formation.
Other skills you will acquire are:

  • Being able to identify different ionic interactions
  • Understanding how the strength of acids and bases are calculated
  • Being able to identify functional groups and propose how they react
  • Understanding how structural variation of a drug can alter its pharmacological properties
  • Gain an insight into the fundamental molecular basis of interaction of a drug with a drug target

Adam Le Gresley, PhD

Dr. Adam Le Gresley is Associate Professor in the department of Pharmacy and Chemistry at Kingston University London.
Le Gresley was awarded his PhD in supramolecular organic chemistry by the University of Surrey in 2004 and carried out his postdoctoral research on photolabile compounds at Drexel College of Medicine in Philadelphia, USA, funded by the NIH.

He was appointed to the Faculty of Science at Kingston University in 2009, where he has been teaching on U/G and P/G courses within chemistry, pharmacy and the biological sciences for the last 6 years. In addition to teaching, Le Gresley maintains a small research group, funded by a number of industrial partners including GlaxoSMithKline with interests in NMR metabolomics, the synthesis of new in vitro diagnostic probes for problem pathogens and novel Rab7 inhibitors for the treatment of diabetes.
He is a regular reviewer for a number of peer-reviewed journals and has contributed to the development of courses across the faculty. Le Gresley was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2011 and subsequently to Associate Professor in Organic and Medicinal Chemistry in 2013.

Great professor!
By Austin B. on 15. January 2017 for Ionic Chemistry

Soothing voice, this professor was easy to follow and I enjoyed listening to his lectures.

 
Thank you sir its really awesome

Thank you sir its really awesome. keep it up it helps me

 
Pretty good.
By Anna H. on 22. December 2016 for Chemistry

The lectures are good quality. I hope they will add more videos, so that all of the chemistry content that is covered on the MCAT is included. Three years of chemistry (two semesters of general chemistry and lab, two semesters of organic chemistry, organic lab, and two semesters of biochemistry.....) definitely wasn't covered here. This is a nice quick refresher and an overview of some important concepts, though.
