Laboratory Techniques In Organic Chemistry
Written for the laboratory that accompanies the sophomore/junior level courses in Organic Chemistry, Zubrick provides students with a valuable guide to the basic techniques of the Organic Chemistry lab. The book will help students understand and practicegood lab safety. It will also help students become familiar with basic instrumentation, techniques and apparatus and help them master the latest techniques such as interpretation of infrared spectroscopy.
A hands-on guide to assist in the planning and execution of synthetic reactions in the laboratoryDespite the maturity of organic chemistry, it can still be very challenging to identify optimal methods for synthetic transformations that perform as well in real-world manufacturing processes as they do in the laboratory. This detailed and accessible guide attempts to address this vexing issue and deliver proven methodologies practicing synthetic chemists will find valuable for identifying reaction conditions that work reliably over the broadest possible range of substrates.
This comprehensive lab companion provides a thorough introduction to all of the significant operations used in the organic lab, for both traditional-scale and microscale applications. It includes enough theory to help students understand how and why an operation works, but emphasizes the practical aspects of an operation to help them perform the operation successfully in the lab.
Success in an experimental science such as chemistry depends on good laboratory practice, a knowledge of basic techniques, and the intelligent and careful handling of chemicals. Practical Organic Synthesis is a concise, useful guide to good laboratory practice in the organic chemistry lab with hints and tips on successful organic synthesis. Topics covered include: safety in the laboratory environmentally responsible handling of chemicals and solvents crystallisation distillation chromatographic methods extraction and work-up structure determination by spectroscopic methods searching the chemical literature laboratory notebooks writing a report hints on the synthesis of organic compounds disposal and destruction of dangerous materials drying and purifying solvents Practical Organic Synthesis is based on a successful course in basic organic chemistry laboratory practice which has run for several years at the ETH, Zurich and the University of Berne, and its course book Grundoperationen, now in its sixth edition.
Developing the green organic program at the University of Oregon, Kenneth Doxsee and James Hutchison saw the urgent need and rapidly growing demand for green chemistry laboratory materials. This lab text describes the tools and strategies of green chemistry, and the lab experiments that allow investigation of organic chemistry concepts and techniques in a greener laboratory setting.
This book offers a comprehensive introductory treatment of the organic laboratory techniques for handling glassware and equipment, safety in the laboratory, micro- and miniscale experimental procedures, theory of reactions and techniques, relevant backgro
