The subject Nanomaterials for bioapplications is focused on biomaterials and their development and their classification, new generation nanobiomaterials, their preparation and degradation. Furthermore, metal, ceramic, polymer and composite biomaterials as well as nanobiomaterials for tissue engineering will be presented. Nanoparticles in pharmacy and targeted drug delivery, nanoparticles from natural biopolymers, quantum dots and superparamagnetic nanoparticles for diagnostics and therapy will be presented.

Aim of the course -

Students will be able to:

perceive organocatalytic reactions in terms known to you from the previous courses on organic chemistry and biochemistry

recognise and understand the basic organocatalytic reactions

understand the mechanisms of organocatalyzed reactions and to broaden the mechanistic understanding in general organic chemistry.

identify conditions required for catalytic cycles to be efficient.

use organocatalysis for designing key steps in the synthesis of organic molecules.
