Rearrangement reaction is one of the important but unique teaching contents in organic synthesis course, as it seems very different from the basic organic reactions, such as substitution reactions, addition reactions, elimination reactions, oxidation and reduction. In fact, rearrangement reactions are involved in many chapters of organic chemistry course, which makes it hard for the students to get a deep understanding of these types of reactions and clarify the relationship between them. Therefore, the development of teaching practice in a deep leaning manner is of significant importance. Based on the characteristics of this course and the current teaching situation, we focused on the four characteristics of deep learning, and took teaching clips as an example to illustrate the application of deep learning theory in organic synthesis.

Key words: Deep learning, Rearrangement reaction, Academic thinking, Teaching application
