Planned learning activities and teaching methods:
The course consists of lectures (2 hrs per week) with the following structure: introduction, structure, properties and nomenclature, synthetic methods of preparation, reactivity and organic transformations, applications and practical utility. The course also consists of group tutorials (2 h per week).
Assesment methods and criteria:
Written exam test with maximum score 50 points. The exam is passed when student reaches at least 56% points, i.e. 28/50. The final grade follows the percentage of points obtained: A 92-100%, B 83-91%, C 74-82%, D 65-73%, E 56-64%.
