CODE: HOH201                   BASIC ORGANIC STEREOCHEMISTRY

    Basic Organic Stereochemistry is an important course of Organic Chemistry major. It studies the structures of molecules in three-dimensional space under given conditions.

     The content of this course includes the basic topics of organic stereochemistry such as steric structures of organic moelecules, conformational isomerism of acyclic and cylic compounds, structural isomerism including geometrical and optical isomerism. This course basically provides the fundamental knowledge of Organic Stereochemistry.

 

CODE: HOH202                    ORGANIC REACTION MECHANISMS 1

     This is a mandatory course for students whose major is organic chemistry. This course is on the basic matters of organic reactions as well as the mechanism and the stereochemistry of nucleophilic substitution at saturated carbon, elimination reaction, and the addition to carbon-carbon double bond.

 

CODE: HOH203                    ORGANIC REACTION MECHANISMS 2

    This course provides students basic knowledge on organic reaction mechanism so that they can use these theories to explain and propose the mechanism for a given reaction as well as to anticipate the factors that contribute to the reaction. This course is on the basic matters of organic machenism and stereochemistry of the attack of nuclophile at carbonyl, rearrangement and electrophilic aromatic.

 

CODE: HOH204                    ORGANIC SYNTHESIS

    This course is intended for senior students of Organic Chemistry major. It provides the students with the basic knowledge on reactions in organic synthesis, such as bond formation, bond cleavage, functional group transfomation, oxidation, reduction, funtional group protection, and total synthesis.

 

CODE: HOH205                    CHEMISTRY OF NATURAL PRODUCTS

    This is a compulsory subject of organic chemistry graduate students. This course provides information about the origin, ecological role, isolation, structure determination, biosynthesis, biological activity, synthetic, semi-synthetic, and application of natural compounds belonging to the group of terpenoids, steroids, phenols, and alkaloids.

 

CODE: HOH206                    BIOCHEMISTRY

     Provide basic knowledge about the structure, function and metabolism of biological compounds such as proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, ... In particular, focusing on the role of the enzyme or receptor to understand the enzyme-catalyzed chemical reactions and cell signaling. Moreover, protein synthesis is also mentioned along with the concept of recombinant proteins and genetic engineering techniques.

 

CODE: HOH207                   ADVANCED ORGANIC PRACTICE 1

        This is an advanced organic chemistry practice course which helps students consolidate the knowledge and improve their practice skills in laboratory that they have learned in the two previous pratice courses, HOH118 and HOH117. In addition, the course will also help students develop the ability of analysis, evaluation, design, method selections, experimental procedure selections, in order to organize activities not only related to organic chemistry researches but also other researches. In addition the course help students get familiar with the knowledge which can apply to the real life.

The course provide the knowledge about :
