"Organic Reactions for Drug Synthesis" is characterized by many organic reactions and complex compounds, which are difficult for most students to understand. A teaching method of induction and summarization has been described in this article, named "Reaction Tree". A reaction tree can clearly demonstrate the commonalities and differences of different organic reactions. By depicting a reaction tree with important organic reactions in every chapter, the knowledge structures become systematized and methodized, which helps to enhance its effectiveness in teaching these subjects.

Key words: Reaction tree, Organic reactions for drug synthesis, Induction and summarization, University chemistry, Teaching method
