Elemental chemistry is an important part of inorganic chemistry. The study on the properties and reaction rules of inorganic compounds through experimental methods can make the traditional descriptive teaching a three-dimensional teaching that is easy to be received by students. This experiment includes the synthesis of simple inorganic compounds and the utilization of temperature-programmed reduction technique (TPR) to investigate the redox properties of those inorganic compounds. The TPR technique can directly reflect the reduction process of the samples and provide the qualitative information of the reduction ability from the peak location, quantitative information of the reduced species from the peak intensity, and the interaction between the components. The TPR technique can be easily applied in college teaching for chemical laboratory courses.

This article aims at how to cultivate top talents through analytical chemistry teaching by following the philosophy of teaching student to fish rather than giving them a fish. Throughout the course, multimode teaching practice was implemented via combining "large-size lecture classes" with "seminar and small-size learn-by-doing classes". It is hoped that through these efforts, the students will, at least in the analytical chemistry field, enhance the abilities to obtain and evaluate scientific references and research achievements, improve oral and written expression skills, and have hands-on DIY experience in assembling and disassembling analytical instruments. The multimode teaching practice is expected to make contribution to establish high-quality education system for top talents to stand out.

This paper briefly introduces a series of international training measures adopted by us for cultivating the top talented students in our college. Specifically, we learned some advanced training modes from the first-class oversea universities (e.g. joining the U.S. Summer Undergraduate Research Mentoring Experience Program), and implemented a coherent step-by-step internationalizing strategy for training our top students (including course learning, research training, and comprehensive practical training). In addition, we have also created a novel MOOC-based blended teaching mode between Sino-foreign academics. We hope these measures and experiences will benefit the establishment of an efficient cultivation mode for top talented students in china.
