Table of contents


Phytochemistry is the area that comprises the study of chemical substances found in plants, including the metabolism that originates these compounds, their ecological context, their production by plants, their classification, isolation and potential applications for human use, including applications in areas such as medicine , cosmetics, and food industry. Thus, this course aims to introduce the viewer to this fascinating world of phytochemistry by addressing the topics of  secondary metabolism, types of secondary metabolites, methods of studying plant extracts, an overview of structural elucidation techniques and biotechnological applications.

This introductory course has theoretical classes on the subjects covered in the form of a video, and at the end of each section, there is a Quiz on the content to be answered. In some classes, a scientific article is added as an additional resource for further reading on the topic. The course is divided into 6 main sections:
•Introduction to phytochemistry
•Secondary metabolism
•Secondary metabolites
•Plant investigation methods
•An overview of Structural identification methods
•Biotechnological applications of natural products

So if you …
•Want to know the area of ​​phytochemistry
•Want to know what kind of molecules can be found in plants
•Are you curious to understand the principles of isolation techniques of molecules of a plant
•Want to know the main techniques for identifying compounds isolated from a plant
•Want to know what is the role of plant molecules in nature
•Wish to know how to look for plants that may be useful in medicine
•Would like to know the usefulness of plants in the food industry, agriculture, among others
•Would like to know how to search plant molecules in a small-molecule database (PUBCHEM)
… this introductory course is for you!


• A basic knowledge of biology and chemistry is desirable

You will learn

✓ What is phytochemistry and why study it

More info about the instructor, Guilherme Matos Passarini, MSc

English:Hi, my name is Guilherme, I have a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences and a master’s degree in Experimental Biology, both from the Federal University of Rondônia (Brazil). My main research area is the search for compounds that are active against the parasites of malaria and leishmaniasis. I also have been programming for a while, especially in the programming languages Python and R. My main interests are biology, biotechnology, programming, medicinal chemistry, and artificial intelligence. My main goal here in Udemy is therefore spreading the knowledge related to these areas to people around the world.Português:Bacharel e licenciado em Ciências Biológicas pela Universidade Federal de Rondônia, mestrado em Biologia Experimental pela Universidade Federal de Rondônia e atualmente cursa doutorado também em Biologia Experimental pela Universidade Federal de Rondônia. Desenvolveu seus trabalhos de iniciação científica e mestrado na busca de moléculas de plantas bioativas contra os parasitas da malária e leishmaniose, tendo trabalhado com fitoquímica e ensaios antiparasitários in vitro. No final do mestrado, começou a se interessar por bioinformática, química medicinal e programação, aplicando alguns programas de bioinformática e quimioinformática para auxiliar na descoberta de drogas antimaláricas. Possui experiência com as linguagens Python e R, e iniciou a programar em Javascript. Seu projeto de doutorado se constitui em avaliar um composto antimalárico já testado durante o mestrado de forma mais aprofundada contra o parasita da malária, realizando análises virtuais, como verificação de características físico-químicas e farmacocinéticas, docking molecular (interação virtual entre ligante e proteína-alvo do parasita) e ensaios em placas de cultura, assim como testes em animais de laboratório.
