About the course

The course deals with the foundations of organic chemistry from an industrial perspective: Where do all the molecules which surround us in daily life come from, what aspects are involved in their production, and what are the current trends in the organic chemical industry? A brief historical overview is followed by more detailed discussions of important large-scale processes, including chemical, economic, safety and environmental issues. Guest lecturers from chemical industries will illustrate the differences to small-scale chemistry in a research lab, and provide real-world examples.
