Teaching ‘natural product chemistry’ in Tanzania

Malcolm S. Buchanan, Dominic P. Sumary

Abstract


Natural products ‘historically’ and ‘today’ have vast importance. This article describes the course ‘Natural Product Chemistry’, a new course in the 2011/2012 academic year in the Faculty of Natural and Applied Sciences at St. John’s University of Tanzania. It reveals how the course has been applied to the African and Tanzanian context and expresses the importance of a ‘Natural Product Chemistry’ course within chemical education. This paper also serves as a resource to help other scientists develop a similar course within their context.
