Introduction to Organic Laboratory Techniques: A Small Scale Approach

Cengage Learning, 2005 - Science - 1028 pages
8 Reviews
In this laboratory textbook for students of organic chemistry, experiments are designed to utilize standard-scale ("macroscale") glassware and equipment but with smaller amounts of chemicals and reagents. The textbook features a large number of traditional organic reactions and syntheses, as well as the isolation of natural products and experiments with a biological or health science focus. The organization of the text is based on essays and topics of current interest. There are six introductory technique-based experiments and eleven project-based experiments. In addition, there is a section of green chemistry experiments. The book contains a comprehensive treatment of laboratory techniques, including small-scale and some microscale methods. Benefits: NEW! New, techniques-based experiments are used as the first, introductory experiments to appeal to those situations where instructors do not want to jump immediately into advanced material. New technique experiments include: Experiment 1, "Solubility;" Experiment 2, "Crystallization;" Experiment 3, "Extraction;" Experiment 4, "Chromatography;" Experiment 5, "Simple and Fractional Distillation;" and, Experiment 6, "Infrared Spectroscopy and Boiling Point Determination." Several of these experiments conclude with "Critical Thinking Applications"--short exercises in which students must provide experimentally determined solutions to problems related to the techniques and the underlying principles. The textbook contains a variety of small-scale experiments using standard-scale (macroscale) glassware and equipment.

Essays and examples on contemporary topics are provided to spark student interest and engage them in the learning process.

Hate the lab book...it should really move at a slower pace than the lecture. Maybe 2 chapters slower than the lecture. Perhaps then most students would actually have a clue about what they're doing in lab...just my 2 cents. Also hated having to refer to "techniques" in the back of the book all the time. It really slows down progress.

About the author (2005)

Donald L. Pavia earned his BS degree in chemistry from Reed College and his PhD in organic chemistry from Yale University. In 1970, he joined the faculty at Western Washington University as Assistant Professor and now holds the rank of Professor Emeritus. He is the coauthor of two organic laboratory books that include techniques and experiments: INTRODUCTION TO ORGANIC LABORATORY TECHNIQUES: A MICROSCALE APPROACH, Fifth Edition (Brooks/Cole), and A SMALL SCALE APPROACH TO ORGANIC LABORATORY TECHNIQUES, Fourth Edition (Brooks/Cole), as well as MICROSCALE AND MACROSCALE TECHNIQUES IN THE ORGANIC LABORATORY (Brooks/Cole), which highlights techniques to be used with a faculty member's own experiments. He is a co-author, with Gary M. Lampman, George S. Kriz and James R. Vyvyan of an organic spectroscopy book, INTRODUCTION TO SPECTROSCOPY, Fourth Edition (Brooks/Cole). Professor Pavia's research interests center on the synthesis and reactions of valence tautomeric and photochromic compounds, especially pyrylium-3-oxide tautomers. Autoxidations are a special interest. His other interests include the use of computers in teaching organic chemistry, both for lecture presentation and for the simulation of laboratories. He is the author of several computer programs. One such program is SQUALOR (Simulated Qualitative Organic Analysis) for which he won the 1986 EDUCOM/NCRIPTAL award. The program is designed for teaching the methods for solving organic unknowns.
