Summary: This thorough introduction to organic laboratory techniques presents an integrated view of the theory underlying technique while aiming to provide an understanding of the techniques rather than mere training in their use. With experiments covering a wide range of scales from micro to standard, this text emphasizes the middle ground, small scale, providing large enough amounts of materials to develop the required manipulative skills while minimizing the costs and haza ...show morerds of the materials employed.
Takes a small scale approach to experimentation, keeping costs of materials and their disposal down by a factor of five compared to standard scale, while retaining most standard scale equipment and requiring no special glassware. Materials at this scale are large enough to be seen and efficiently handled and manipulated.
Places a special emphasis on safety, systematically minimizing the use of hazardous materials and pointing out the potential hazards that still may arise. Throughout, the text embraces an "environmentally friendly" orientation towards experimentation wherever possible. experiments with potentially hazardous materials have been removed and modified in this new edition with the goal of making all the experiments environmentally benign. Introduces students to multi-step synthetic sequences similar to the pattern of synthetic chemistry practiced in research laboratories. Many experiments have been designed as part of multi-step sequences with amounts selected so that no supplementation is needed in the sequence.
Discusses the theory underlying separation techniques in a consistent manner built around the concept of vapor pressure.
Includes expanded coverage of spectroscopy, a topic of increasing importance in this field. This revised and enhanced treatment gives students a valuable look at spectroscopy in an integrated context. separate chapters are given on Mass spectroscopy, Infrared, Visible/UV, and NMR.
spectra of many organic compounds are given throughout the text.
all infrared spectra have been rerun on a modern FT instrument. Several new experiments have been added to this edition. Adamantyl chloride
Hexaphenylbenzene Includes questions for each experiment as well as worked examples of calculations where appropriate. ...show less
