Experimental Organic Chemistry (EHEP001625) cover image
This cutting-edge lab manual takes a multiscale approach, presenting both micro, semi-micro, and macroscale techniques. The manual is easy to navigate with all relevant techniques found as they are needed. Cutting-edge subjects such as HPLC, bioorganic chemistry, multistep synthesis, and more are presented in a clear and engaging fashion.

  • Multiscale Approach. Students learn to work at the micro, semi-micro, and macroscale levels, in the end, allowing them to differentiate which is more appropriate for a given experiment.
  • Easy to Navigate. Techniques are introduced at the appropriate time in the course, instead of combined at the end like many other books.
  • State of the Art Spectroscopic Analysis. 500-MHz, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, and IR spectra presented at the end of experiments prepare the students for future challenges. Especially for those who go to schools with limited access to spectrometers.
  • "Safety First." Boxes that emphasize hazards and chemical toxicity for each experiment.
  • Pre-lab and In-lab Questions. Pre-lab questions help students prepare for each experiment and In-lab questions aid them in interpreting their results and in writing their lab reports (answers are not provided in book). These questions are very comprehensive and can be used instead of a lab report.
  • Puzzles and Open-ended Experiments. Students are exposed to research-like situations by investigating the course of a reaction or solving an unknown. Students are more than mere spectators to the experiment, they are true participants.
  • Connections to Everyday Life. Many of the experiments allow students to see how chemistry relates to their own lives.
