|Principles of molecular recognition: cation/anion complexation and their technological applications; complexation of neutral molecules in aqueous solution; non-covalent interactions involving aromatic rings; hydrogen bonding; molecular sef-assembly - a chemical approach towards nanostructures; thermodynamics and kinetics of complexation processes; synthesis of receptors; template effects.
|The objective of this class is to reach an understanding of the nature and magnitude of the intermolecular interactions and solvation effects that provide the driving force for the association between molecules and/or ions induced by non-covalent bonding interactions. The lecture (2 h) is complemented by a problem solving class (1 h) which focuses on receptor syntheses and other synthetic aspects of supramolecular chemistry.

|Printed lecture notes will be available for purchase at the beginning of the class. Problem sets and answer keys will be available on-line.
|No compulsory textbooks. Literature for further reading will be presented during the class and cited in the lecture notes.
|Prerequisites / Notice
|Course prerequisite: classes in organic and physical chemistry of the first two years of studies.
|Spectra Interpretation of Organic Compounds
2-semester course only for Environmental Engineering Bachelor
|R. Zenobi, M. Badertscher, Y. Yamakoshi
|Exercises in interpretation of molecular spectra
|Mastering the interpretation of molecular spectra.
|In the first part of the lecture, the students work in small groups on solving particular problems in structure elucidation, interpreting mass, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, IR, and UV/VIS spectra, optionally in discussion with the lecturers. In the second part the problems are solved by a lecturer.
|Spectroscopic problems will be distributed
