Introduction:

This course is designed to allow students to have a basic understanding about the bonding and structures of organic molecules and ions, and their influences on the molecular properties of organic compounds, and the reactivity and selectivity of some organic reactions. This course will focus on the stability of reaction intermediates, and the reactivity and selectivity of addition reactions, nucleophilic substitutions, eliminations, and electrophilic aromatic substitutions.

本课程设计旨在让同学对有机分子及离子的键合及结构,及它们在有机分子的特性和有机反应的活性及选择性的影响上有基础的理解。本课程将会集中讨论各类反应中间体的稳定性,及加成反应、亲核取代反应、消除反应和亲电芳香取代反应的活性及选择性。
