Fundamentals of Chemistry 2 (Term II)
The main goal of this course is to grasp what chemistry is all about and to learn the respective vital principles and elementary knowledge in different subjects of chemistry. Fundamentals of Chemistry II begins with chemical kinetics and equilibrium, advances to thermodynamics and electronics, and finishes with chemical structures, properties, and reactions. Based on the knowledge, educated following the course contents, the students will be able to solve chemistry problems in each subject of physical, electro-, nuclear, inorganic, solid-state, organic, and biological chemistries, from simple to complex and hybrid.
Organic Chemistry 1 (Term III)
The primary purpose of this course is to help students build a logical framework for understanding fundamental organic chemistry. Therefore, this course emphasizes how the organic molecular structures and the electron density compositions are related to patterns of organic chemical reactions. Participants are expected to investigate the mechanism of intramolecular or intermolecular organic reactions and solve the problem of progressive reaction sequences based on the knowledge learned through the course contents.
Organic Chemistry 2 (Term IV)
The primary purpose of this course is to acquire a logical framework for understanding fundamental organic chemistry. This framework provides an influence for chemical reactions of the organic molecules having π-bonds. Based on the knowledge of the course contents, the participants are expected to understand organic reaction sequences happening with unsaturated organic molecules, including aromatic compounds, and solve the progressive problems sequentially.
Organic Chemistry 3 (Term V)
The primary purpose of the course is to master a logical framework for understanding fundamental organic chemistry. The outlines essentially provide the reactions of the organic compounds having critical functional groups, such as hydroxy, carbonyl, amino groups, and their derivatives. Students are expected to understand the organic chemical reactions transforming one functional group into another and solve progression problems based on the knowledge learned through the course contents.
Organic Chemistry 4 (Term VI)
The primary purpose of this course is to acquire a logical framework for understanding advanced organic chemistry. The course begins with condensation reactions of carbonyl and amine compounds, moves on to various reactions comprising migration steps, and advances to heterocyclic chemistry and organometallic chemistry, which are rapidly expanding fields. Organometallic compounds, powerful nucleophiles with carbon-metal bonds, have often been supplied for synthetic transformations. Replacement of the first metal by a new one can activate or control the chemical reactions' outcomes. Based on the knowledge, the participants are expected to conduct how to perceive appropriate answers to challenging problems in organic chemistry.
Organic Chemistry 5 (Term V)
The primary purpose of the course is to learn the spectroscopic analysis of organic molecules and the interpretation of spectral data. The course begins with theoretical/fundamental knowledge on the chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques (GC, HPLC, NMR, UV, IR, Raman, Mass, and so on) and continues to assignments of organic molecular structures with Spectra-type problems. Furthermore, it covers problem-solving regarding organic reactions to reinforce students’ understanding of molecular structures/reactivities. The participants are expected to solve the progressive problems sequentially.
