Pharmaceutical Inorganic Chemistry

Atomic and Molecular Structure: Short review of electronic structure of atoms and molecules, including introduction of quantum theory, application of Schrödinger equations to simple systems (e.g. the Hydrogen atom) to show the origin of the: n, l, m, s, nomenclature. The relationship between the electronic structure of elements and the formation of covalent, ionic and coordinate (dative) bonds leading to complexation and chelation. Their nature and pharmaceutical important.

Pharmaceutical Inorganic Chemistry: A comparative study of the physicochemical properties, preparations and uses of elements and compounds of pharmaceutical importance in periodic table including transitional elements; the chemical basis for the pharmaceutical uses will be emphasized. Inorganic compounds used as GIT agents, pharmaceutical aids, in dentistry, topical agents, body electrolyte, fluid and electrolyte replenishers.

Radiochemistry/Radiopharmacy Introduction to Radiochemistry: Types, sources and measurements of radioactive particles.
