Herein, we proposed a research-oriented computational chemistry experiment. During the experiment, students should design by-themselves the computational experiment through literature research, mechanism assumption, computational verification and data analysis. The course integration of fundamental knowledge and practical ability provided a good base to inspire the activity and creativity of the students. This experiment was set up for the realization of the target of cultivating research type talents.

Key words: Research-oriented experiment, DFT calculation, Organic reaction mechanism
