Course description and aims

This course aims at learning principles and methods for basic experiments in organic chemistry, which are required for conducting research in the laboratory.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Conduct basic organic experiments required for research in the laboratory.
2) Solve problems when in trouble with basic organic experiments.
3) Describe the aim, results, and discussion of organic experiments clearly.


Organic Chemistry,Polymer Chemistry

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Students start experiments after the guidance on the flow of the experiments in the first ~30 min in each class.

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend a certain length of time outside of class on preparation and review (including for assignments), as specified by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Undergraduate Learning (東京工業大学学修規程) and the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Graduate Learning (東京工業大学大学院学修規程), for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.


An original textbook edited by the School of Life Science and Technology

Reference books, course materials, etc.

Handouts will be distributed as necessary.
