Module studies

You complete the module studies with an examination and receive the specified credit points. These can be credited towards a Bachelor's or Master's degree. The modular study programme is interesting for you if you only want to book a single module. At the end, you will receive a certificate with a detailed list of your achievements.

Product information "Modelling of Chemical Properties and Fate"

The module covers the background and practical application of substance evaluation using computer-based methods. Due to improvements in computational power, computer-based methods have changed the traditional way to engage in experimental science. Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) models link a property or effect, such as boiling point or toxicity, to parameters associated with chemical structure. These models can be used to assess chemical substances within the so-called in silico approach (as an analogy to the in vitro and in vivo approach). After a basic introduction, this module mainly focuses on the practical application and applicability of in silico software and assessment.
