Learning objectives

The course will provide the fundamental skills to understand chemical-physical phenomena concerning systems of biotechnological interest. The student will acquire the ability to apply chemical-physical concepts for the measurement of thermodynamic, kinetic, spectroscopic and transport quantities. Special attention will be devoted to applicative aspects, such as cases of real systems and various methods to analyse the results obtained from laboratory experiments. The course will include laboratory experiences to provide manual skills and critical ability in dealing with chemical-physical processes, as well as to provide notions on acquiring data with modern equipment. Experiments concerning the measurement of thermodynamic quantities, kinetic constants and other spectroscopic properties, concerning electronic, vibrational and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) properties of molecules of biotechnological interest will be discussed. Moreover, experiments on the properties of colloidal systems will be considered.

Prerequisites and basic notions

General and Inorganic Chemistry. Organic chemistry.

Didactic methods

The teaching will be carried out as lectures and laboratory experiences. The teaching methods will include the application of the concepts developed to concrete cases. Attendance of the teaching is strongly recommended. For the laboratory part, for each experience the drafting of a written paper is required which illustrates the methods and tools used together with the results obtained.

Learning assessment procedures

The exam will be oral, including questions on the topics covered in both modules and the part concerning laboratory experiences. Mastery of the concepts illustrated will be assessed, in particular the application aspects. The skills acquired from laboratory experiences will also be evaluated. The verification methods will be the same for both attending and non-attending students. Extraordinary appeals may possibly be envisaged, subject to agreement with the teachers.

Students with disabilities or specific learning disorders (SLD), who intend to request the adaptation of the exam, must follow the instructions given HERE

Evaluation criteria

The evaluation criteria will be based on the ability to discursively organize knowledge, critical reasoning on the skills acquired, quality of exposure, effectiveness and linearity of exposure.

Criteria for the composition of the final grade

The final grade will be given in relation to the learning of the theoretical parts of the two modules and the laboratory experiences.
A score will be assigned for each written paper relating to the four laboratory experiences (from 0 to 0.5 points per paper). The sum of the four scores (for a maximum total of 2 points) will be added to the oral exam grade.

Exam language

Italiano.

Type D and Type F activities

Le attività formative di tipologia D sono a scelta dello studente, quelle di tipologia F sono ulteriori conoscenze utili all’inserimento nel mondo del lavoro (tirocini, competenze trasversali, project works, ecc.). In base al Regolamento Didattico del Corso, alcune attività possono essere scelte e inserite autonomamente a libretto, altre devono essere approvate da apposita commissione per verificarne la coerenza con il piano di studio. Le attività formative di tipologia D o F possono essere ricoperte dalle seguenti attività.

1. Insegnamenti impartiti presso l'Università di Verona

Comprendono gli insegnamenti sotto riportati e/o nel Catalogo degli insegnamenti (che può essere filtrato anche per lingua di erogazione tramite la Ricerca avanzata).

Modalità di inserimento a libretto: se l'insegnamento è compreso tra quelli sottoelencati, lo studente può inserirlo autonomamente durante il periodo in cui il piano di studi è aperto; in caso contrario, lo studente deve fare richiesta alla Segreteria, inviando a carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it il modulo nel periodo indicato.

2. Attestato o equipollenza linguistica CLA

Oltre a quelle richieste dal piano di studi, per gli immatricolati dall'A.A. 2021/2022 vengono riconosciute:

  • Lingua inglese: vengono riconosciuti 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza superiore a quello richiesto dal corso di studio (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).
  • Altre lingue e italiano per stranieri: vengono riconosciuti 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza a partire da A2 (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).

Tali cfu saranno riconosciuti, fino ad un massimo di 6 cfu complessivi, di tipologia F se il piano didattico lo consente, oppure di tipologia D. Ulteriori crediti a scelta per conoscenze linguistiche potranno essere riconosciuti solo se coerenti con il progetto formativo dello studente e se adeguatamente motivati.

Gli immatricolati fino all'A.A. 2020/2021 devono consultare le informazioni che si trovano qui.

Modalità di inserimento a librettorichiedere l’attestato o l'equipollenza al CLA e inviarlo alla Segreteria Studenti - Carriere per l’inserimento dell’esame in carriera, tramite mail: carriere.scienze@ateneo.univr.it

3. Competenze trasversali

Scopri i percorsi formativi promossi dal TALC - Teaching and learning center dell'Ateneo, destinati agli studenti regolarmente iscritti all'anno accademico di erogazione del corso https://talc.univr.it/it/competenze-trasversali

Modalità di inserimento a libretto: non è previsto l'inserimento dell'insegnamento nel piano di studi. Solo in seguito all'ottenimento dell'Open Badge verranno automaticamente convalidati i CFU a libretto. La registrazione dei CFU in carriera non è istantanea, ma ci saranno da attendere dei tempi tecnici. 

4. CONTAMINATION LAB

Il Contamination Lab Verona (CLab Verona) è un percorso esperienziale con moduli dedicati all'innovazione e alla cultura d'impresa che offre la possibilità di lavorare in team con studenti e studentesse di tutti i corsi di studio per risolvere sfide lanciate da aziende ed enti. Il percorso permette di ricevere 6 CFU in ambito D o F. Scopri le sfide: https://www.univr.it/clabverona

ATTENZIONE: Per essere ammessi a sostenere una qualsiasi attività didattica, incluse quelle a scelta, è necessario essere iscritti all'anno di corso in cui essa viene offerta. Si raccomanda, pertanto, ai laureandi delle sessioni di dicembre e aprile di NON svolgere attività extracurriculari del nuovo anno accademico, cui loro non risultano iscritti, essendo tali sessioni di laurea con validità riferita all'anno accademico precedente. Quindi, per attività svolte in un anno accademico cui non si è iscritti, non si potrà dar luogo a riconoscimento di CFU.

5. Periodo di stage/tirocinio

Oltre ai CFU previsti dal piano di studi (verificare attentamente quanto indicato sul Regolamento Didattico): qui informazioni su come attivare lo stage. 

Verificare nel regolamento quali attività possono essere di tipologia D e quali di tipologia F.
