OC 4: Fortgeschrittene Synthesemethoden - WiSe 2019/2020


Thursdays 12:00-14:00 in Hörsaal B (Arnimallee 22). Starting 17.10.2019 (Total = 16 Lectures).


Mondays 14:00-16:00 in Hörsaal B (Arnimallee 22). Starting 21.10.2019 (Total = 15 Problem Sessions).

Active Participation

To be credited with active participation ("aktive Teilnahme") in this course, you need to answer the problem sheets before each problem session. You need to hand in or otherwise show that you have attempted 60% of the problem sheets (ie. 8 out of 14 - in the final problem session we will go through past paper questions) to be credited with active participation. 

There are two options: 

  • You can quickly show me your answers at the beginning of the problem session.
  • You can hand them in to my office (Room 003 in the Container of Fabeckstr. 34/36). If I am not there, they can be placed in the blue folder attached to the door. If you hand them in by 10:00 on the monday of the problem session, I will do my best to have a look at them before the afternoon so that you can get some feedback and tips.
