Organic Chemistry Laboratory
This laboratory course is for non-majors. Students combine knowledge with practical skills in this course by purifying, synthesizing, and identifying organic compounds. Techniques include: acid/base extraction, recrystallization, distillation, organic reactions, IR spectroscopy, refractive index, and melting point. Students learn to keep a lab notebook. There are two, three-hour laboratory periods per week. Lab fee $100.
Students may substitute CHEM A310 and CHEM A311 for CHEM A305.
