Organic Chemistry Laboratory Techniques (Microscale) – 4th Edition

Author: L. Nyenty Arrey
ISBN 10: 1-60797-814-8
ISBN 13: 978-1-60797-814-5



The purpose of this text is to present the basic techniques used in the organic chemistry laboratory. Understanding and using these techniques will enable students to complete their work correctly and on time the first time it is performed. This text is also based on the types of experiments, methods, and instruments used in most chemistry department laboratories.
This text covers the course materials in depth and is applicable for advance references. You may wish to consult additional references to learn more about approaches to different techniques. It is not claimed to be a comprehensive compilation of information to meet all possible needs and circumstances; rather, the intention is to provide sufficient guidance that will allow students to focus on particular instruments and techniques to carry out experiments under conditions which will offer the highest chance of success. This edited volume provides students with the tools they need to be successful in sophomore organic chemistry.

Reasons for Adopting this Manual

1. The manual presents basic organic chemistry techniques that will enable students to complete their work correctly and on time.
2. It focuses on particular instruments and techniques that are required and often used in sophomore level organic chemistry laboratories.
3. Easy to read with greater understanding.
4. Single-sided pages for student use.
5. Basic spectroscopy problems to enhance student’s ability to interpret spectra.
6. No experiments included
7. Less expensive– Students quit paying 80-100 dollars for an organic chemistry laboratory manual.
