Introduction:

This course aims at introducing the essential concepts of organic chemistry and how it is closely related to our daily life. Students will learn the fundamental knowledge of organic chemistry with a particular emphasis on stereochemistry. Through laboratory demonstration and participation, students will be introduced to basic experimental techniques and scientific methods in organic chemistry. Students can therefore gain appreciation of the daily practice of a synthetic organic chemist in a university research environment.

本課程旨在介紹有機化學的精華和這一學科與我們日常生活的緊密聯繫。學生將學習有機化學的基本知識及立體化學的專題討論。通過參加實驗,學生將學到有機實驗的基本技術和科學方法,從而接觸到有機合成化學家在大學研究環境裏的日常工作及操作。
