Techniques and Experiments for Advanced Organic Laboratory
January 1997, ©1997
This manual introduces advanced chemistry students to a variety of techniques which are used in research, including the most useful instrumental analysis (NMR, capillary GC, and GC-MS). Experiments illustrate the power of modern instrumentation, particularly capillary GC and NMR. Interesting experiments require students to perform "detective work" and in the "Exploring Further" sections, students are encouraged to explore optional ideas for more in-depth and independent studies.
