Lecture preparation is the autonomous island of the faculty and so perhaps truly unique. During the lecture period, our team is mainly responsible for the preparation and follow-up of the lectures, but especially for the demonstration experiments. Over 900 experiments in organics, inorganics and analytics are in our file and have been used for years to support teaching in the basic lectures.

For the integration of demonstration experiments into your lecture, more than 900 experiments are available in our cardex lists. Please send us your experiment lists at least one week before they are to be carried out in your lecture. To support your teaching in lectures, seminars and tutorials, you can also choose from a series of short films of chemical experiments. You will receive access to these videos on request.

Experiment lists

  • Inorganics I
  • Inorganics II
  • Organic Chemistry
