Now featuring new themed Modules experiments with real world applications, this Seventh Edition of the market leader for the full-year organic laboratory course derives many experiments and procedures from the classic Feiser lab text, giving it an unsurpassed reputation for solid, authoritative content. This proven manual offers a flexible mix of macroscale and microscale options for most experiments, emphasizing safety and allowing instructors to save on the purchase and disposal of expensive, sometimes hazardous, organic chemicals. Macroscale versions for less costly experiments allow students to get experience working with conventionally-sized glassware.
- GREENER CHEMISTRY. Experiments that stress greener chemistry appear throughout the manual and are identified with a green chemistry icon. For example, the use of household bleach is explored as an alternative to the toxic chromium ion as an oxidizing agent for cyclohexanol.
- AN EMPHASIS ON LABORATORY SAFETY. The laboratory safety chapter includes material on working with closed systems and laboratory courtesy.
- A STRONG MASS SPECTROMETRY CHAPTER. The chapter on mass spectrometry describes time-of-flight and mass quadrupole analyzers and includes sections on GC-MS and computer-aided spectral identification, as well as ESI and MALDI ionization.
- BIOASSAY EXPERIMENTS. The manual’s bioassay experiments include a bioassay of eugenol isolated from cloves.
- COMPREHENSIVE COVERAGE. Material is offered on diffuse reflectance IR analysis, capillary GC, and temperature programming.
- PREMIUM WEBSITE. A Premium Website includes glassware-specific videos with pre-lab, gradable exercises.
