CH 249 - Organic Chemistry Laboratory 3

2 Credit(s)

This is the third 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. Students in this course will develop and pursue a synthesis research project.

Prerequisite: CH 242  (if taken with included lab, prior to winter 2021) or CH 248  
Prerequisite/Corequisite: CH 243  
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. Develop and pursue a synthesis research project

3. Use chemical references to gather information about organic compounds

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

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

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

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