Theory and Practice in the Organic Laboratory with Microscale and Standard Scale Experiments, Fifth Edition (Brooks/Cole Laboratory Series for Organic Chemistry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Integrating 56 microscale and standard scale procedures and experiments, this comprehensive organic laboratory text allows all programs--even those that cannot afford a large investment in commercial kits--to complete effective microscale experiments. The Fifth Edition now features Discovery, Cooperative-Discovery, and Combination labs. Background chapters guide students through laboratory techniques, enabling them to work as real world chemists. This lab manual covers treatment of safety and hazardous waste disposal; coverage of laboratory techniques for the handling, synthesis, separation, and purification of organic compounds; and inclusion of spectroscopic methods for the identification of compounds.

Book News Annotation:

Intended for use in the laboratory portion of a one-year organic chemistry course, this textbook presents background material on classical and modern lab techniques, and on the instrumentation used in organic chemistry. Chapters concentrate on topics like safety, examination of pure compounds, chromatography, crystallization and filtration, extraction and drying, distillation, and spectroscopy. It also includes 56 experiments illustrating these techniques as well as important organic reactions and concepts. Landgrebe teaches at the University of Kansas.
