Ch 5b Fall 2010 2 INTRODUCTION In Chemistry 5b you will learn many of the basic techniques and skills as well as some of the philosophy and art required in the practice of synthetic chemistry. The course has been designed to introduce you to many important reactions that have fundamental significance in synthetic and reaction chemistry. In order to develop your manipulative skills, you will handle many different types of compounds. In Chemistry 5b you will handle compounds that are reactive towards either the dioxygen or the water in air. Thus, their preparation and handling will require special techniques to exclude air. An additional emphasis is placed on learning about the operation of instruments important to the synthetic chemist and interpretation of the information obtained from them. There will usually be a one hour lecture per week. Chemistry 5b Projects Points I. An Introduction to Schlenk and Cannula Techniques: Reactions of [(C 5 H 5 )Fe(CO) 2 ] 2 300 II. Vacuum Line Techniques - Synthesis and Study of a Cobalt Dinitrogen Complex 300 III. Asymmetric Synthesis - Use of a Chiral Manganese Catalyst for the Asymmetric Epoxidation of Styrene 300 The laboratory will be open ONLY during scheduled times (see Page 1). Due to the limited amount of special equipment required, you will perform Project II in pairs . The other experiments are to be performed individually. You may complete the experiments in any order. It is essential that you plan ahead. If you adopt the habit of coming to the laboratory without a detailed understanding of the chemistry you are to pursue and the apparatus needed, you will end up feeling rushed, and you will not gain the maximum benefit from the course. You also might not finish the course. GRADING The grading in this course will be on a points-earned basis. You will be evaluated both on the quality of your work as well as the amount accomplished. You must pay special attention to pre- laboratory preparation, reaction yield maximization, careful purity checks, and laboratory write-ups. Laboratory Component The following general guidelines will be used in grading the laboratory work. 1. 30% for completion of the experiment and obtaining a product. 2. 30% for TA's evaluation of purity and yield of product and quality of experimental data.
