Teaching

Winter Term 2019/20

Lecture Course „Stereochemistry, OC-III (Bachelor)“
The lecture is held in HR 30.1 every Monday 8:00-9:30 am. It starts October 21, 2019. 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 in HR 30.1 every Monday 11:30 am – 1:00 pm. Respective exercises are available via Stud.IP after every lecture.

Lecture Course “Retrosynthetic Analysis and Metals in Organic Synthesis (Master)“
The lecture is held in HR 30.2 every Thursday 8:00-9:30 am. It starts October 24, 2019. 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 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 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 „Retrosynthetic Analysis and Metals in Organic Synthesis (Master)“
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 (Bachelor)“
The lab course teaching fundamental organic reactions takes place every Thursday and Friday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm in the student labs in Hagenring 30. It starts October 24, 2015 with obligatory safety instructions and will end before Christmas. Enrollment is performed via Stud.IP.
