Faculty of Biology and Chemistry

Course Title: 0801 Current topics in organic chemistry

Course Description

The seminar series “Current topics in organic chemistry” will confront the participating students with up-to-date organic chemistry projects which will be presented by our in-house scholars, as well as international specialists in their respective fields.
The lectures present a broad spectrum of organic chemistry related topics and projects, which often also intersect with physical chemistry and biology. During the seminars the students will receive a brief theoretical foundation by the lecturer, building on a base knowledge of organic chemistry, which will help them understand the current topics and enable self-assisted deeper learning. Over the course of the seminar the students should choose a topic of their interest and prepare a short seminar talk on their own, to demonstrate their grasp of the topic. The final examination will be a summary of the lectures and how the lectures may affect the students’ own research in the future.
