Course description and aims

In this lecture, students carry out a review of Organic Chemistry I, II, II and IV in a practice form. Students can learn the basic knowledge and concept of organic chemistry that are necessary for the research using organic compounds.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will learn the basic knowledge about organic compounds as follow:
(1) haloalkane
(2) alcohol・carbohydrate
(3) alkene・alkyne
(4) aromatic compounds
(5) aldehyde・ketone
(6) carboxylic acid and its derivatives
(7) amine・amino acid


Organic chemistry, basic, practice

Competencies that will be developed

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

Class flow

Seven professors are responsible for this lecture held through Zoom (Live).
Prior to or during the lecture, students are expected to solve exercise assignments posted on T2SCHOLA and submit their answers on the platform. Subsequently, each professor will provide detailed explanations on how to solve the exercise assignments.

Course schedule/Required learning

  Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Haloalkane Students will review the basic knowledge about haloalkane.
Class 2 Alcohol・Carbohydrate Students will review the basic knowledge about alcohol and carbohydrate.
Class 3 Alkene・Alkyne Students will review the basic knowledge about alkene and alkyne.
Class 4 Aromatic compounds Students will review the basic knowledge about aromatic compounds.
Class 5 Aldehyde・Ketone Students will review the basic knowledge about aldehyde and ketone.
Class 6 Carboxylic acid and its derivatives Students will review the basic knowledge about carboxylic acid and its derivatives.
Class 7 Amine・Amino acid Students will review the basic knowledge about amine and amino acid.

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

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
In particular, for exercise problems that they couldn't grasp during the lecture, make an effort to improve their understanding by using lecture recordings or other resources.
