Organic Chemistry 2 Lab
This course covers traditional material taught in Organic Chemistry, as well as basic organic laboratory techniques, including correct documentation of work in a laboratory notebook, thin layer chromatography, distillation, recrystallization and separations. It will also include various characterization techniques, including NMR, IR, gas chromatography, melting point determination, and refractometry. Lastly, it will cover many of the organic transformations and mechanisms covered in most basic organic chemistry lecture courses, including polymerizationn, Diels-Alder, Aldol, Grignard syntheses, green chemistry, unknown characterization with multiple techniques and multi-step synthesis. This course will also include written and oral presentation components.
