2 credits2GJ. A. Hiss, A. Burden, J. Dolenc, J.‑C. Leroux, O. Renn, C. Steuer
AbstractThis introductory class provides an overview of the basic scientific writing techniques and a guideline to presenting scientific data, together with guided exercises and hands-on training. It is devised to accompany the research projects within the curriculum of the MSc in Pharmaceutical Sciences.
ObjectiveThe class enables the participants to prepare their own scientific texts and oral presentations, and critically assess the quality of the presentation of scientific data.
ContentThe participants receive an introduction to basic formal aspects of scientific writing and the design of graphical elements. Lectures and topical seminars alternate with practical task for the participants, which will be evaluated in a peer-to-peer setting. Performance feedback is provided by both the teachers and the peers.
529-0004-01LClassical Simulation of (Bio)Molecular Systems Information 6 credits4GP. H. Hünenberger, J. Dolenc, S. Riniker
AbstractMolecular models, classical force fields, configuration sampling, molecular dynamics simulation, boundary conditions, electrostatic interactions, analysis of trajectories, free-energy calculations, structure refinement, applications in chemistry and biology. Exercises: hands-on computer exercises for learning progressively how to perform an analyze classical simulations (using the package GROMOS).
ObjectiveIntroduction to classical (atomistic) computer simulation of (bio)molecular systems, development of skills to carry out and interpret these simulations.
ContentMolecular models, classical force fields, configuration sampling, molecular dynamics simulation, boundary conditions, electrostatic interactions, analysis of trajectories, free-energy calculations, structure refinement, applications in chemistry and biology.

Lecture notesThe powerpoint slides of the lectures will be made available weekly on the website in pdf format (on the day preceding each lecture).
LiteratureSee: www.csms.ethz.ch/education/CSBMS
Prerequisites / NoticeSince the exercises on the computer do convey and test essentially different skills than those being conveyed during the lectures and tested at the oral exam, the results of the exercises are taken into account when evaluating the results of the exam (learning component, possible bonus of up to 0.25 points on the exam mark).

529-0549-01LCase Studies in Process Design I3 credits3AG. Guillén Gosálbez, J. Dolenc, U. Fischer
AbstractThe focus of part I of the case study course lies on the literature-based comparison of chemical process alternatives. Based on this compilation and selected quantitative as well as qualitative measures, a process assessment and comparison is conducted. A basic flowsheet is then generated, and mass and energy balances are performed to carry out a preliminary economic and environmental assessment.
Objective- to obtain knowledge about different databases and sources of information
- application of the knowledge obtained in lectures to a real problem
- problem-oriented problem solving (application of different methods to the same subject)
- team work
- report writing and presentation techniques
ContentThe focus of part I of the case study course lies on the literature-based comparison of chemical process alternatives. For this purpose, relevant substance data (i.e. physico-chemical, toxicological, safety, and environmental data), as well as information about synthesis routes and technical implementations (i.e. on reaction kinetics; possible separation operations; economic, safety, and environmental aspects), are collected from the literature. Based on this compilation and selected quantitative as well as qualitative measures, a process assessment and comparison is conducted and the most promising process alternative is chosen for further evaluation. For this alternative, a basic flowsheet and mass and energy balances are generated.
