11.3 Design and materials
Candidates will not be expected to recall specific examples but to use and explain material given in the
question paper.
Content
Learning outcomes
I
Medicinal chemistry and
drug delivery
Candidates should be able to use the concepts and knowledge from
the core syllabus and sections 11.1 and 11.2 to:
II
Properties of polymers
(a) discuss the challenges of drug design and explain in simple
terms how molecules may be identified and developed to
overcome these problems
III Nanotechnology
IV Environment and energy
(b) discuss the challenges of drug delivery and explain in simple
terms how materials may be developed to overcome these
problems
(c) discuss the properties and structure of polymers based on
their methods of formation (addition or condensation, link to
core syllabus, section 10.8)
(d) discuss how the presence of side-chains and intermolecular
forces affect the properties of polymeric materials (for example,
spider silk)
(e) show awareness of nanotechnology and, given information
and data, be able to discuss the chemistry involved with
reference to the core syllabus
(f) discuss how a knowledge of chemistry can be used to
overcome environmental problems (for example, ground water
contamination, oil spillage, CFCs)
(g) discuss how a knowledge of chemistry can be used to extend
the life of existing resources, to identify alternative resources
and to improve the efficiency of energy production and use
