Under the current situations of organic chemistry teaching and reforms, a new practical blended teaching method has been developed by combining problem-based learning and flipped classroom with the traditional classroom teaching. It features utility of publicly available online teaching resource and chemistry literature and has been successfully applied in the small-size teaching of organic chemistry for the top talented undergraduate students in biology major. Our teaching practice showed that this blended teaching method is not only convenient and practical; it can also efficiently cultivate the students' interest in learning and facilitate their integrative training including chemical literature searching, communication ability, and teamwork ability. Accordingly, it would be helpful to improve the teaching quality of organic chemistry and promote training of top talented students.
