Introduction:

This course is designed to allow students to have a basic understanding about the bonding and structures of organic molecules and ions, and their influences on the molecular properties of organic compounds, and the reactivity and selectivity of some organic reactions. This course will focus on the stability of reaction intermediates, and the reactivity and selectivity of addition reactions, nucleophilic substitutions, eliminations, and electrophilic aromatic substitutions.

本課程設計旨在讓同學對有機分子及離子的鍵合及結構,及它們在有機分子的特性和有機反應的活性及選擇性的影響上有基礎的理解。本課程將會集中討論各類反應中間體的穩定性,及加成反應、親核取代反應、消除反應和親電芳香取代反應的活性及選擇性。
