Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This manual derives many experiments and procedures from the classic Feiser lab text, giving it an unsurpassed reputation for solid, authoritative content. Featuring updated NMR spectra, new experiments that stress green chemistry and a Premium Website that includes glassware-specific videos with pre-lab, gradable exercises, this TECHNIQUES LABS edition of the authors' proven lab manual includes the most commonly used labs in the print manual and makes all the other experiments from MACROSCALE AND MICROSCALE ORGANIC EXPERIMENTS available for download on the companion website. Offering a flexible mix of macroscale and microscale options for most experiments, this proven manual emphasizes safety and allows users to save on the purchase and disposal of expensive, sometimes hazardous, organic chemicals. Macroscale versions can be used for less costly experiments, allowing users to get experience working with conventionally-sized glassware.
