Teaching

Winter Term 2017/18

Lecture Course “OC II: Organic Reaction Mechanisms: Reactivity and Selectivity (Bachelor)”
The lecture is held in SN 20.2 every Friday 9:45-11:15 am. It starts October 20, 2017. The basic reaction mechanisms of organic reactions will be discussed. Special emphasis is put on the reactivity and selectivity within organic reactions. Basic knowledge of organic chemistry (OC I) is absolutely required. Corresponding material is available via Stud.IP. An accompanying seminar course will be offered for a deeper understanding of the subject (see below).

Seminar Course (Tutorium) “OC II (Bachelor)”
A corresponding seminar course in smaller groups will take place according to the defined schedule. Respective exercises are available via Stud.IP after the lecture on Friday afternoon. It is highly recommended to solve the exercises and to join these courses in order to be well prepared for the final exam. The final exam (Modulabschlussklausur) will cover OC I and OC II.

Lecture Course “Retrosynthesis and Metals in Organic Chemistry”
The lecture is held in HR 30.2 every Thursday 8:00-9:30 am. It starts October 19, 2017. In a first part disconnection approaches of simple and more complex organic molecules are taught. In a second part organometallic reactions including main group elements and transition metals are discussed. Special emphasis is put on the reactivity of the metal-carbon bond and respective reaction mechanisms. The lecture is highly recommended for students with a deep interest in organic chemistry or preparative chemistry in general. Especially students who wish to perform a Master Thesis in organic or inorganic chemistry should attend this course. Basic mechanistic knowledge in organic chemistry (as obtained during the Bachelor) is prerequisite and will not be repeated. Corresponding material is available via Stud.IP. Together with the lecture “Heterocyclic Chemistry” (given by Dr. Philipp Klahn) an accompanying seminar course will be offered for a deeper understanding of the subject (see below).

Seminar Course “Retrosynthesis and Metals in Organic Chemistry”
A corresponding seminar course will take place in HR 30.1 every Tuesday 11:30 am – 1:00 pm (alternating with “Heterocyclic Chemistry” given by Dr. Philipp Klahn). Respective exercises are available via Stud.IP after each lecture.

Lab Course “Organic Chemistry for Biotechnology Students”
The lab course teaching fundamental organic reactions takes place every Thursday and Friday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm in Hagenring 30. It starts October 20, 2017 with obligatory safety instructions and will end before Christmas. Enrollment is performed in due course via Stud.IP.
