Course objectives

The course aims at providing the students with the fundamentals of molecular recognition, of the interactions responsible for the formation of supramolecular systems and on the role of metals in biological systems and medicine. The student will be introduced to the principal classes of supramolecular systems (organic / inorganic of biological interest) together with the main techniques currently used for their characterization.

Oggetto:

Results of learning outcomes

- Knowledge of the nature of non-covalent interactions at the basis of the formation of supramolecular compounds which are held together by intermolecular bonds.

- Knowledge of the basic coordination chemistry and of the interdisciplinary approach to study the peculiar role of metals in biology and their interaction with organic and biological molecules.

-Basic knowledge of different spectroscopic techniques used to study metals in biological systems and intermolecular interactions.

- Capability to analyse data resulting from the methods indicated above
