Because conceptual questions are included in Lavelle's midterms and final, it would definitely be helpful to know the biological examples/functions of the transition metals he went over in class. I don't think he'd test us on an obscure example he didn't go over in depth.
I'm guessing that the biological functions of the different transition metals will be tested along with the role of cisplatin in chemotherapy. It might also help to know why cisplatin is effective in comparison to transplatin.
Yes, biological examples will definitely be on the final. Any biological example he mentioned is fair game. The ones to know in depth based on the emphasis they were given in lecture are: cisplatin structure and how it works, ethylenediamine and EDTA relationship, Porphyrin and myoglobin relationship, and know that vitamin B12 is a chelate structure.
