327-0309-00LOrganic Chemistry in Materials Science2 credits1GW. R. Caseri, P. J. Walde
AbstractThis lecture allows the students to consolidate the basics of organic chemistry through selected exercises.
ObjectiveConsolidation of the basics of organic chemistry.
ContentThis lecture consists predominantly of exercises and serves mainly to prepare the students intensively for aspects in materials science, based on the lecture Chemie II. A large number of questions will be provided, which will partially be discussed in the lecture while the other part is devoted to self-study.
