Experimental Organic Chemistry: Laboratory Manual is designed as a primer to initiate students in Organic Chemistry laboratory work. Organic Chemistry is an eminently experimental science that is based on a well-established theoretical framework where the basic aspects are well established but at the same time are under constant development. Therefore, it is essential for future professionals to develop a strong background in the laboratory as soon as possible, forming good habits from the outset and developing the necessary skills to address the challenges of the experimental work. This book is divided into three parts. In the first, safety issues in laboratories are addressed, offering tips for keeping laboratory notebooks. In the second, the material, the main basic laboratory procedures, preparation of samples for different spectroscopic techniques, Microscale, Green Chemistry, and qualitative organic analysis are described. The third part consists of a collection of 84 experiments, divided into 5 modules and arranged according to complexity. The last two chapters are devoted to the practices at Microscale Synthesis and Green Chemistry, seeking alternatives to traditional Organic Chemistry. Organizes lab course coverage in a logical and useful way Features a valuable chapter on Green Chemistry Experiments Includes 84 experiments arranged according to increasing complexity

Green chemistry involves designing novel ways to create and synthesize products and implement processes that will eliminate or greatly reduce negative environmental impacts. The Green Chemistry Laboratory Manual for General Chemistry provides educational laboratory materials that challenge students with the customary topics found in a general chemistry laboratory manual, while encouraging them to investigate the practice of green chemistry. Following a consistent format, each lab experiment begins with objectives and prelab questions highlighting important issues that must be understood prior to getting started. This is followed by detailed step-by-step procedures for performing the experiments. Students report specific results in sections designated for data, observations, and calculations. Once each experiment is completed, analysis questions test students’ comprehension of the results. Additional questions encourage inquiry-based investigations and further research about how green chemistry principles compare with traditional, more hazardous experimental methods. By placing the learned concepts within the larger context of green chemistry principles, the lab manual enables students to see how these principles can be applied to real-world issues. Performing laboratory exercises through green experiments results in a safer learning environment, limits the quantity of hazardous waste generated, and reduces the cost for chemicals and waste disposal. Students using this manual will gain a greater appreciation for green chemistry principles and the possibilities for future use in their chosen careers.

EXPERIMENTS IN GENERAL CHEMISTRY, Fifth Edition, has been designed to stimulate curiosity and insight, and to clearly connect lecture and laboratory concepts and techniques. To accomplish this goal, an extensive effort has been made to develop experiments that maximize a discovery-oriented approach and minimize personal hazards and ecological impact. Like earlier editions, the use of chromates, barium, lead, mercury, and nickel salts has been avoided. The absence of these hazardous substances should minimize disposal problems and costs. This lab manual focuses not only on what happens during chemical reactions, but also helps students understand 'why' chemical reactions occur. The sequence of experiments has been refined to follow topics covered in most general chemistry textbooks. In addition, Murov has included a correlation chart that links the experiments in the manual to the corresponding chapter topics in several Brooks/Cole general chemistry titles. Each experiment--framed by pre-and post-laboratory exercises and concluding thought-provoking questions--helps to enhance students' conceptual understanding.
