1 Inorganic Chemistry (CH 431) Laboratory Manual This manual details the experiments and procedures to be followed in the laboratory section of CH 431. Read through it and use this manual as a guide for safety, grading, and the conducting of experiments during the semester. Please be advised that there may be instances when this manual may not be followed exactly due to space, time, or safety considerations. Your T.A. will advise you of any possible changes as well as answer any questions you may have about the course. You are expected to be adequately prepared before coming to each of the laboratory class periods. This includes, but is not limited to, a thorough reading of the experiment that is to be performed. You should have a good idea of what it is you are going to do before coming to the laboratory class period. Please read the introduction and safety precautions that follow before coming to your first laboratory class period. The information contained in these sections concerns your safety and the inert nitrogen gas atmosphere apparatus. These instructions and safety precautions will apply to all of the experiments and they should be referred to periodically throughout this laboratory course. Safety Guidelines The following safety rules will be obeyed at all times by everyone in the laboratory. Failure to properly abide by these rules will be grounds for dismissal from the laboratory period and/or dropped from the course. Safety glasses will be worn at all times by all personnel in the laboratory. Anyone discovered in the laboratory not wearing safety glasses will be dismissed from the laboratory section. NO EXCUSES! No open-toed shoes or shorts will be allowed in the laboratory. All flasks used in the laboratory should be labeled, whether they are solvents, compounds, or starting materials. Any flasks or vials discovered without labels will be discarded by the T.A. Note the location and types of fire extinguishers (e.g., CO2, dry powder, etc.) that have been strategically placed around the laboratory room. Do not pour any organic solvents or wastes down the sink. Deposit all waste in the properly labeled containers. Research the hazards associated with the starting materials and products formed in the reaction before you attend lab. This information can be found by referring to the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) located in the chemistry library.
