This course is designed for researchers who wish to fill gaps in their basic chemistry and see how it relates to drug design and optimization.
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 also 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, the reactivities of the elements, and the difference between covalent and ionic bond formation.

I really like how you explain the concepts, I realized though that on some slides, there are too long sentences. Sometimes I don't really read them because I need to focus on what you say. It would be great if less words would be on the slides but in a way that is still informative. But all in all, I'm enjoying the course a lot and you did a way better job explaining the concept of shells and orbitals, than my chemistry professor did. Thanks a lot.
its easy to understand but somethings are a little confusing because of the speed
Quite an informative lecture. Helpful in breaking down complex concepts.
This lecture series is quite informative and helpful. Maybe due to different learning styles is why some students don't see it fit; however, I find it quite helpful in both refreshing minds in prior learnt concepts, preparing for classes, and studying the MCAT as a non-trad. It makes you want to further seek more information and learn about the application of the concepts, rather than simply memorising formulas or synthesis steps. Give it a try, you would learn alot about simplifications of complicated concepts. I especially enjoyed the organic chemistry lectures and the explanations about medical and organic chemistry. A bit of prior knowledge could be beneficial, but it isn't a necessity.
