Individual chapters show you how to use the techniques to synthesize compounds and analyze their properties, complete multi-step syntheses of organic compounds, and solve structures of unknown compounds. New experiments in Chapter 17 and 18 demonstrate the potential of chiral agents in fostering enantioselectivity and of performing solvent-free reactions.
A bioorganic experiment in Chapter 24 gives you an opportunity to accomplish a mechanistically interesting and synthetically important coupling of two a-amino acids to produce a dipeptide.

Experimental Organic Chemistry : A Miniscale and Microscale Approach, International Edition
Introduction, Record Keeping, and Laboratory Safety. Techniques and Apparatus. Solids: Recrystallization and Melting Points. Liquids: Distillation and Boiling Points. February 14, - Published on Amazon. Verified Purchase. A really good textbook. Shipping was prompt, and in new perfect condition.
As for the content, it's a great organic chemistry lab textbook. It's clear, explains good background during each experiment, and is relatively easy to understand, especially for intro ochem studies. Highly recommend! December 23, - Published on Amazon. The book came early, although it required a signature when delivered which I did not know about. The product information when I bought it was "Brand New, Unread Copy", and the book that I received was clearly read and opened at some time: the spine is not tight and firm and there's wear on the corners of the binding.
For the price though the book is in excellent shape, I just would have liked it to be as advertised. For future buyers be aware that there may be some inaccuracies with the description of your product. August 30, - Published on Amazon.

Most chemistry lab books are boring. All too often students get the lab steps skip to this section and just like robots follow steps. As such in my experience very little of a lab book gets read. This is the exception. I've read this one page by page and learned so much.
