3. Core Courses and Introduction

Chemistry Reaction Engineering:
Chemical Reaction Engineering is a core component of the teaching system of applied chemistry, by learning this course, students can master the basic principles and methods of chemical reaction engineering, understand the current situation of development, and can be integrated application of knowledge in the actual reaction industrial process.
The main subject in the curriculum of Chemical Reaction Engineering concerns reaction kinetics, chemical reactor analysis and design fundamentals. The learning objectives include the basic of reaction kinetics, tank reactors, tubular reactors, residence time distribution and flow models of reactor, complex reaction and selection of reactor, chemical reaction and transport phenomena in multiphase system.

Modern Organic Synthesis
Modern organic synthetic chemistry is a basic degree course for M.S. candidates in Chemistry. Organic chemistry is one of the most important branches in the field of organic chemistry. This course mainly deals with the basic theory of modern organic synthetic chemistry and various kinds of organic chemical reactions , also, it contains their synthesis methods. To Consolidate the basic theory of organic chemistry , to learn the important organic chemical reaction, to master advanced organic synthesis chemistry theory, the modern synthetic organic chemistry is necessary. The course can make this professional master enter oneself for an examination professional doctoral student requirements, to get a master's degree thesis and lay a good foundation for the scientific research work in the future. To adapt students to the 21st century applied chemistry related personnel training needs.

Chemical Separation
The principle of separation in chemical engineering and related development of other disciplines are understood. Further, the process design, simulation and optimization method of separation are mastered too. What’s more, with advanced separation technology, we could enhance the purity and yield of product, and commit ourselves to the field in comprehensive utilization of resources, energy conservation and emission reduction as well. The main contents include: current situation   and developing trend of chemical separation, distillation integration technology, extractive distillation separation technology, azeotropic distillation technology, liquid-liquid extraction separation, crystallization separation technology, membrane separation technology and the application of the integration separation technology in petrochemical industries.

Synthesis and Technology of Fine Chemical
Applied chemistry discipline orientation is to cultivate a solid theoretical basis, wide knowledge of professional and industrial production for fine chemical products the actual situation understanding, industry and trade of both the senior professionals. The synthesis of fine chemicals technology course in the teaching content tries to reflect the subject characteristics. It will be the basic theory of organic chemistry and fine chemical products and the production practice. The students of fine chemical products and organic chemical synthesis knowledge to enhance the level of knowledge and technology of fine chemical engineering master, and research and development ability and improve the quality of great. Through the course of learning, students can understand and master the technical category of fine chemical products, the important series products, the synthetic principle, the production technology and development trend. Grasping the fine chemical products related to the synthetic route design and optimization of synthetic technology expertise.

Industry Catalysis
This course will help students master the basic rules of catalysis, understand chemical nature of industrial process and the basic requirements and characteristics of the industrial technology. This course can provide a solid theoretical foundation services for the training of professional chemical engineering. This course discusses the basic requirements of industrial catalysis, thermodynamic equilibrium principle constraints on catalysis; introduction of various types of catalysts and their application, help students to understand the composition of industrial catalysts, principles and methods of preparation; preparation and characterization of industrial catalysts.
