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:
This course is divided into two parts which are:
Informative. Interesting. Punctual. enthusiastic. Descriptive. Mature. Accented. Kind. Thorough. Well planned.
It was a little rushed in places, feeling more like a quick review than actual teaching, but for the most part it was great. The professor explained things better than most of my teachers, and at the end of the day I am leaving the course with a legit grasp of whatever he covered. I would recommend this as a refresher for some of the major concepts of basic chemistry, but probably is not the best place to learn things from scratch.
It was very helpful and the professor did a better job explaining the concepts than the online course I am taking. Thank you!
Adam Le Gresley is doing in amazing job letting you understand all important chemistry topics. Great Job!
