Pharmaceutical Chemistry is integral to the practice of pharmacy, providing knowledge of the chemistry relevant to the study of pharmaceutical drugs. Relevant basic principles of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, will be contextualised through application to the patient. Inorganic chemistry: Introduction to transition metals and the application to bio inorganics and drug molecules. Analytical chemistry: Introduction to analytical techniques. and the elucidation of chemical structure. Physical Chemistry: Reaction kinetics and mechanisms of reaction, physical pharmacy concepts including colligative properties, phase equilibria and chemical partitioning. Organic chemistry; A general introduction to functional groups, general features of organic reactions and relevant reaction mechanisms, including the spectroscopy applied to the elucidation of chemical structure. Concepts of medicinal chemistry will also be introduced.
|As this is a level 1 subject in the BPharm(Hons)/MPharm pathway, students will be expected to have the standard entry requirements for the degree pathway.|
