Teaching

Winter Term 2020/21

Lecture Course „Stereochemistry, OC-III (Bachelor)“
Due to the COVID-19 restrictions the lecture is given online every Monday 8:00-9:30 am. It starts October 19, 2020. Discussed are static and dynamic stereochemistry of organic molecules (symmetry elements, point groups, different types of isomerism, stereochemical nomenclature (D,L-system, CIP), topicity, chiroptical methods, separation techniques and stereoelectronical effects for the preferred determination of conformations). In the field of dynamic stereochemistry special emphasis is put to general principles such as the Curtin-Hammett principle, methods of stereoinduction, trajectories in chemical reactions and chelating effects. Finally, autocatalytic processes for chiral amplification and theories about the origins of chirality are presented. Basic mechanistic knowledge in organic chemistry (as obtained during OC-I and OC-II) is prerequisite and will not be repeated. 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 „Stereochemistry, OC-III (Bachelor)“
A corresponding seminar course will take place every Monday 11:30 am – 1:00 pm. Respective exercises are available via Stud.IP after every lecture. Whether the exercises will be given online or in presence in a lecture hall will be decided later.

Lecture Course „Heterocyclic Chemistry“
The lecture is held online every Monday 9:45-11:15 am. Methods for the preparation of various heterocyclic compounds ranging from three- to seven-membered ring systems are discussed. Special emphasis is put on reactivity, physical-chemical properties and biological properties of heterocyclic systems. 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 this area 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 another lecture of advanced organic chemistry (given by Prof. Dr. Thomas Lindel) an accompanying seminar course will be offered for a deeper understanding of the subject (see below).

Seminar Course „Heterocyclic Chemistry“
A corresponding seminar course will take place in presence in HR 30.1 every Tuesday 11:30 am – 1:00 pm (alternating with the lecture given by Prof. Lindel). 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 in the time from October 5th to October 22nd, 2020, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm in Hagenring 30. For more detailed information, see Stud.IP.
