Organic chemistry laboratory is compulsory for the undergraduate students in pharmaceutical engineering specialty, aiming at training the operation skills of organic synthesis. In the present paper, using "Synthesis of Triphenylmethanol" and "Recrystallization" as model experiments, some teaching experiences on organic chemistry laboratory were discussed. The whole experiment procedure was divided into several pieces for teaching, which was easier to understand and master; the same basic operation experiment should be repeated, e.g. three times to enhance the experimental skill.

Key words: Organic chemistry laboratory, Synthesis of triphenylmethanol, Recrystallization, Division of experiment procedure, Repeated practice
