Laboratory in Organic Chemistry - Honors (2) Basic laboratory techniques learned in context via theme-based modules, spectral analysis, multi-step synthesis, and professional scientific writing. Because of similarity of subject matter, students may not receive credit for both CHEM 203 and CHEM 213.
CHEM 213H Laboratory in Organic Chemistry - Honors (2)
A strong foundation in organic laboratory skills is provided by this laboratory course. Laboratory work includes learning the basic techniques and recrystallization/melting point determination, distillation, liquid/liquid extraction, thin layer, chromatography and column chromatography in a specific context via theme-based modules. Mastery of these basic techniques lays the foundation for carrying out a multi-step synthesis for the Team Project assignment, which may require the use of more advanced laboratory techniques. Students are required to write professional final reports (ACS-style) for each experiment. Students are often provided with hands-on access to instrumentation for the characterization of synthetic products or organic unknowns using standard analysis methods such as IR, NMR, UV/V is spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, polarimetry, HPLC, GC and GC-MS. CHEM 210 is a prerequisite and CHEM 212 a co-requisite for this course, because they provide the theoretical background for the reaction chemistry as well as the spectroscopic characterization of organic molecules.
