Macroscale and Microscale Organic Experiments - 3rd edition

Macroscale and Microscale Organic Experiments (ISBN10: 0395902207; ISBN13: 9780395902202)
ISBN13: 978-0395902202
ISBN10: 0395902207

Summary: This best-selling lab manual for one- and two-semester organic chemistry courses offers a series of clear and concise experiments - with macroscale and microscale procedures for each - that encourage accurate observation and the development of deductive reasoning. The author places strong emphasis on safety and the responsible disposal of hazardous waste.

  • New! Extensive references to relevant Web s moreites can be found in a feature called "Surfing the Web" at the end of relevant chapters.
  • New! For selected experiments, a feature called "For Further Investigation" provides optional, additional procedures that students can perform to further explore the chemical principle being presented.
  • New! A section on computational chemistry has been added to relevant experiments. These computer-based calculations are used to determine the precise structure of molecules.
  • New! The order of the chapters has been changed to follow that of most organic textbooks. Similar types of experiments are now grouped together.
  • New! Experiments now make use of much cheaper and safer solvents.
  • New! Chapters on Molecular Mechanics and NMR Spectroscopy have been rewritten and exercises have been added.
  • New! Three new experiments have been added - Experiments 34, 57, and 57 - respectively, "1,2,3,4-Tetraphenylnaphthalene via Benzyne," "Synthesis of 2,2-Dimethyl-1,5-dioxolane. The Acetonide Derivative of a Vicinal Diol,", and "Isolation of Lycopene and B-Carotene."
  • At the end of every experiment, a "Cleaning Up" section instructs students on how to safely dispose of all by-products of the experiment.
  • Each experiment includes information on the time needed to carry out the experiment, as well as the degree of difficulty of the experiment.
  • Experiments in this manual have been performed by literally thousands of students over the years and are proven to work.
  • Other pedagogical features include prelab exercises, marginal notes, clear line drawings, and questions for students, with answers provided in the Instructor's Resource Manual. less
