      The goalThe study of the basic principles of practical basic chemistry, chemical reactivity of inorganic and small organic molecules through virtual experiments. Through simulated experiments in a virtual laboratory student has the opportunity to'm investigating the reactivity of different substances, monitors, detects and records the changes on line. Working in the virtual lab does not require any specific knowledge of chemistry and allows the student to the interactive quiz planned experiment in a real laboratory.
      The outcomeThe student should understand a number of basic principles and methods in which different chemical and biochemical processes of rest, which can be a valuable help in further learning chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, toxicology, pharmacology.
      Contents of lecturesIntroductory remarks needed to work in a virtual laboratory (2). Medical important elements (1). Structure and application of inorganic compounds in veterinary medicine (3). Organometallic compounds in living systems (3). The mechanisms of action of toxic agents in living systems (3) The importance of free radicals in veterinary medicine (3)
      Contents of exercisesIntroductory remarks, discussion of the results obtained in a virtual laboratory and perform real experiments. Virtual experiment with inorganic agents (3) Carbon in action (3) Basic research in chemistry (3) The biological significance of various chemical substances (4) Chemical characteristics, importance and role of some inorganic ions in the body (4) Structure covalent bonds of complex compounds used in veterinary medicine (4) as well as the synthesis of some complex compounds in the virtual lab (4) Toxic elements and compounds in the environment (2) Determination of the activity of some antioxidant enzymes (3) Seminar papers if they are intended for specific areas.

      Methods of teachingIntroductory remarks needed to operate in a virtual lab, discussion of the results obtained in a virtual lab and perform real experiments using existing animations and interactive quiz. At the end of the course, each student is given the task based on the knowledge acquired in the virtual lab to be alone to solve.
