  • Flipping Classroom Design of Spectroscopic Methods in Organic Chemistry Based on the SPOC Concept
  • LI Zhongfeng, GUO Changbin, MENG Xiangfu, WANG Yingfeng, LI Kai
  • The SPOC course of spectroscopic methods in organic chemistry explored a combination of online and offline hybrid teaching methods based on the Chinese University MOOC network (https://www.icourse163.org/). Based on the characteristics of students at normal universities, the course was designed by improving teaching methods, designing course processes and contents, improving the contents of online video course, experiencing lessons and learning processes, and analyzing actual teaching results. The course aims to explore SPOC teaching rules, carry out teaching reforms, and provide more in-depth, meaningful, and effective teaching methods.

  • Cultivating Students' Research Ability in the Physical Chemistry Seminar
  • YUAN Hong, WANG Ruifang, LI Lei, TONG Jiawen, YANG Jian, SHI Junyang, LI Gang, LI Wuke, HUANG Jin
  • In the physical chemistry course, surface tension, surface free energy, and Young-Laplace equation are the basics in interface and colloidal chemistry. For students, it is the key to understand the above mentioned content for studying the follow-up knowledge. This paper presented the physical chemistry seminar via exploring the changes of two connected bubbles with different sizes. The demonstration experiments were valuable for students to know better surface tension, surface free energy, and Young-Laplace equation. Cultivating students' research abilities to apply knowledge and analyze problems were also based on discussing the similarities and differences between two connected balloon and two connected bubbles. The problem-based seminar on physical chemistry could be significant for the related courses.

  • Optimization for Design on the Pipeline and Vacuum Systems in Physical Chemistry Laboratory
  • WU Pingping, XU Xiaoming, XIA Wensheng
  • A number of experiments are involved into the use of gas in physical chemistry laboratory, and then design and installation of pipeline and vacuum systems are significant for many technicians. Here, taking the use of some typical gases in laboratory as examples we introduce our improvement on the pipeline and vacuum systems. This improvement brought the operability of these pipeline and vacuum systems, reduced the risk of gas leakage, and then enhanced the safety during experiments.

  • LI Xuehui, TIAN Jiang, CHEN Liang, YI Chunxiong, WU Qiangxian, WU Zhengshun
  • The hydrogen production from waste cooking oil by catalytic pyrolysis is transformed to the chemical reaction engineering experiment to replace the hydrogen production from carbon monoxide conversion in this study. The students start the experiment from raw materials to obtain the products by themselves. The experimental process can better help students understand the whole continuous chemical production process, stimulate students' interest in learning, improve the students' practical ability to engage in scientific research, reduce the experimental cost, and improve the safety of the experiment.

  • Study on the Physical Meaning and Determination Method of “Detection Limit” in Analytical Chemistry
  • YANG Chun, ZHENG Shan, LIU Yang, SHI Yaying, HUANG Chaobiao
  • In this paper, we studied the physical meaning, measurement methods and potential problems of detection limit in analytical chemistry. The limitation of classical detection limit was also discussed. We studied the detection of thrombin by fluorescence quenching of Pt nanoparticles, based on the specific binding of thrombin aptamer to thrombin. We found a negative correlation between the measured signal and the logarithm of the concentration. In addition, the similar negative correlation was found in the determination of glucose by a glassy carbon electrode biosensor, based on CuGeO3 nanowires and glucose oxidase. The detection limit of the above two method conflicted with the classical detection limits. It appeared abnormal that the better the determination precision, the worse the detection limit.

  • Relationship and Difference among Raoult's Law, Henry's Law, and Azeotropic Solution
  • YIN Xuebo
  • Gas-liquid equilibrium is important in classroom teaching and practical production. In this paper, the relationship and difference among Raoult's Law, Henry's Law, and azeotropic solution are discussed from the point of microscopic view. The different interactions between solvent-solvent, solvent-solute, and solute-solute lead to that the two laws are only useful for dilute solution. When the apparent vapor pressure of the solvent and solute are equal to each other by tuning their mole fraction, the azeotropic solution is produced.
