CH 248 - Organic Chemistry Laboratory 2

2 Credit(s)

This is the second laboratory course of the organic chemistry sequence. Focusing on developing synthetic laboratory skills including synthetic methods, problem solving, product yields, and analytical skills including spectroscopies, with a green chemistry emphasis.

Prerequisite: CH 247  or CH 241  (if taken prior to winter 2021)
Prerequisite/Corequisite: CH 242  
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:

1. Describe, and safely and properly conduct, the techniques of melting point determination, distillations (simple, fractional, and steam), refluxing, recrystallization, extraction, chromatographies as appropriate

2. Use chemical references to gather information about organic compounds

3. Apply laboratory techniques to the preparation and/or characterization of a variety of organic compounds

4. Use analytical techniques such as TLC, melting point determination, and IR/NMR spectroscopic techniques to evaluate and identify laboratory products

5. Keep a proper laboratory notebook and report experimental results using a formal report

6. Evaluate experiments both qualitatively and quantitatively for technique, results, and to analyze experimental errors

7. Use nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to analyze laboratory products
