Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to expand students' knowledge of inorganic, organic, physical chemistry and biochemistry. Students will gain basic ideas about the chemical composition of substances in living organisms, their structure and metabolism.

Teaching methods

Experimental work in labs


The course expands students' knowledge of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, as well as biochemistry. The acquired knowledge forms a necessary basis for subsequent theoretical and practical study of nanotechnologies and bionanotechnologies.
