Chemistry Building 240
This laboratory is designed to accompany Chem 221. The first semester of Organic Chemistry Laboratory introduces the fundamental techniques used in the isolation, purification, and identification of organic compounds. Investigative-style experiments compliment major concepts introduced in the lecture portion of Chem 221. Emphasis is placed on discovering how the structure of an organic molecule is related to physical and chemical properties.
Assessment: Grading is based on the student's performance in the laboratory and on written examinations. Evaluation of the student's laboratory performance is based on the ability to identify unknowns, collect and interpret data, record keeping, ability to work safely, and general aptitude. One evening exam is given on December 1, 2011. Students have the option of taking this exam at either 4:30 or 6:30 p.m.
Prerequisite: Co-enrollment in Chem 221 or Chem 221Z is required. Register for this course as a 1-credit class, NOT as a related component.
