Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

At the end of the course the student will be aware of the need of finding alternative chemical products to problematic existing ones and of the use of principles of Green Chemistry for designing and discovering them. He will know how to use computational approaches for designing new alternative chemicals and forecasting their properties. A special role of peptides and their analogues as new environmentally friendly products will be envisioned. The student is expected to be able to: 1. Design new environmentally friendly chemical products applying the principles of green chemistry; 2. Use the principles of structure-properties relationship for designing new products and forecasting their properties; 3. Design and apply peptides and their analogues as achieving new safe and highly performing chemicals
