Its task to understand the structure, characteristic, interactions, and transformation laws of these substances. The subject will focus on the chapters, which are essential to the life sciences, and strengthen the students' skill in in fundamental sciences. It provides a direct foundation to the better understanding of other subjects as biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, clinical sciences, etc. The knowlegde collected in this course can be remarkably well used by the veterinary specialists in laboratory research and food control.
Participation in the lectures is also compulsory the attendance will be checked (random). Students having more than three uncertified missed lectures do not receive a signature in Chemistry 2, and they are not entitled to sit the end-of-term examination in May-June. The electronic (pdf) version of the lecture slides can be downloaded from the the Intranet after username/password login. Recommended textbooks for the Spring-term:
