For some of you this will be your first laboratory course, and thus first laboratory experience at UNC. For others, this laboratory course will be a continuation of your chemical education in the laboratory, which started in Chemistry 101L and 102L. The focus of this laboratory course is to expose students to a wide variety of modern analytical methods and experimental techniques for the separation and characterization of organic and biological compounds. The laboratory skills and experimental techniques learned over the course of this semester will carry over to future courses you will take here at UNC. In addition, the analytical methods you will learn in this course are used in a wide variety of scientific fields and industries, such as medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology, environmental science, nutritional analysis, chemical industries, and the pharmaceutical industry. A second important objective of this course is to teach students the importance of experimental work and expose them to the scientific process behind this work. Science is about curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, and discovery. Scientists observe, hypothesize, experiment, draw conclusions, and test their results. In this course students will be taught how to make accurate observations and measurements, and to learn how to...
