Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Bioinorganic Chemistry is an interdisciplinary research area and deals with all aspects of metals and their biological functions, e.g., oxygen transport, toxicity of metals, etc. A general introduction in bioinorganic chemistry will be followed by a discussion of the role of the different metals like molybdenum, cobalt, zinc, copper and iron in nature . In parallel, basics in coordination chemistry will be repeated and examples of the current research will be presented.

Assessment and permitted materials

Beurteilung basiert auf schriftlicher/mündlicher Prüfung. Keine Hilfsmittel erlaubt.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The lecture shall provide insight into the central role of coordination compounds in nature. A broad range of examples with different biologically relevant metal ions will lead the students to the understanding of fascinating processes occurring in bioinorganic chemistry.
