Outline of lecture


Bioorganic chemistry related to 窶彙io activity窶 as well as advanced organic chemistry necessary for the study of bioscience and biotechnology is expounded.

Purpose of lecture

In addition to analyze bioorganic molecules and/or organic molecules, their synthesis is a next critical step to take advantage of these molecules in a more positive way. Actually, derivatives of these molecules, which are solely obtained by the artificial synthesis, often prove much more useful than the original biomolecules. In this lecture, such an essential field of organic chemistry, i.e., how to construct and design our own biomolecules, will be discussed.
