Summary: In this laboratory textbook for students of organic chemistry, experiments are designed to utilize standard-scale ("macroscale") glassware and equipment but with smaller amounts of chemicals and reagents. The textbook features a large number of traditional organic reactions and syntheses, as well as the isolation of natural products and experiments with a biological or health science focus. The organization of the text is based on essays and topics of curre...show morent interest. There are six introductory technique-based experiments and eleven project-based experiments. In addition, there is a section of green chemistry experiments. The book contains a comprehensive treatment of laboratory techniques, including small-scale and some microscale methods.
NEW! New, techniques-based experiments are used as the first, introductory experiments to appeal to those situations where instructors do not want to jump immediately into advanced material. New technique experiments include: Experiment 1, "Solubility;" Experiment 2, "Crystallization;" Experiment 3, "Extraction;" Experiment 4, "Chromatography;" Experiment 5, "Simple and Fractional Distillation;" and, Experiment 6, "Infrared Spectroscopy and Boiling Point Determination." Several of these experiments conclude with "Critical Thinking Applications"--short exercises in which students must provide experimentally determined solutions to problems related to the techniques and the underlying principles.
Experiments are well-written, comprehensive, and pre-tested.
Infrared, proton NMR, and 13C NMR spectroscopy is incorporated into many experiments. Some experiments also have an option to use gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
For discovery-based learning needs, open-ended experiments are provided to allow students to "write" their own experimental procedures and make their own discoveries.
Molecular modeling experiments give students an opportunity to experience the power of molecular modeling software.
"Caution" boxes emphasize careful handling of chemicals and the importance of safety in the laboratory.
Clear and accurate diagrams of laboratory set-ups increase students' confidence in setting up a lab.
End-of-chapter problems test students' mastery of the material.
NEW! The Second Edition features a new essay, "Green Chemistry," and two new green chemistry experiments: Experiment 31, "Chiral Reduction of Ethyl Acetoacetate: Optical Purity Determination;" and, Experiment 32, "Nitration of Aromatic Compounds Using a Recyclable Catalyst."
NEW! The authors have included a new section of project-based experiments that features: Experiment 57, "A Separation and Purification Scheme;" Experiment 60, "The Analysis of Antihistamine Drugs by Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry;" Experiment 62, "The Aldehyde Enigma;" Experiment 63, "Synthesis of Substituted Chalcones: A Guided-Inquiry Experience;" and, Experiment 66, "An Oxidation Puzzle." In all of these experiments, students must either solve a significant problem or they must generate all or part of a procedure. Intended to promote critical thinking, these experiments not only challenge students, but also give them a feeling of what it is like to "do" research in chemistry.
NEW! New exercises involving molecular modeling and computational chemistry have been added to several experiments.
NEW! The Second Edition features a reorganization of the technique chapters to more closely match the order in MICROSCALE AND MACROSCALE TECHNIQUES IN THE ORGANIC LABORATORY.
NEW! This new edition also includes three new technique chapters: Technique 4," How to Find Data for Compounds: Handbooks and Catalogues;" Technique 10, " Solubility;" and, Technique 28, "Mass Spectrometry." In addition, several technique chapters have been extensively revised and update.
The textbook contains a variety of small-scale experiments using standard-scale (macroscale) glassware and equipment.
Essays and examples on contemporary topics are provided to spark student interest and engage them in the learning process.
Green chemistry has been introduced as it's become an important topic to share with students.
