Organic Chemistry II Laboratory


Laboratory that accompanies Chemistry 202D. Course provides hands-on synthesis, purification, and characterization of organic compounds. Major functional groups will be explored: aromatic and aliphatic compounds, carbonyls, alcohols, amines, etc. Techniques for separation of organic mixtures and determinations of yields will be practiced. Spectra (NMR, IR, UV, MS) will be collected to characterize compound structures. Responsible conduct in laboratory research practices will be emphasized, including but not limited to adherence to chemistry laboratory safety guidelines, proper laboratory notebook record keeping, analysis of data, and scientific writing.
