Text : Note: Although a text book is not required for this class, use of your 143A book for reference to techniques is helpful. For each experiment, I will refer you to techniques discussions in the Bell textbook although any source of such discussions is suitable. The books used for 143A over the past years have been: C.E. Bell, D.F. Taber and A.K. Clark, Organic Chemistry Laboratory , 3 rd Ed., Harcourt Collage Publ., 2001. J.R. Mohrig, C.N. Hammond, and P.F. Schatz, Techniques in Organic Chemistry, 2nd Ed., W.H. Freeman and Co., 2006 and 3 rd edition. Optional: The Organic Chem Lab Survival Manual , 6 th Ed. By J.W. Zubrick. Assumed Knowledge : 1

It is assumed that you have intimate knowledge of the of the following organic transformations (as well as a thorough mechanistic and stereochemical understanding of them) that were covered in 140 A and B: acylations, alkylations, aldol condensation, esterifications, substitution reactions, addition reactions, elimination reactions, oxidations, reductions, organometallic reactions (Grignards; organolithiums), electrophilic aromatic substitutions (directing effects), hydrolysis, aldol reactions, and Diels-Alder reactions. If you are not comfortable with any of these, be sure to review them as we will not spend a lot of time discussing them in class. Nonetheless, understanding these reactions is critical for your success in the lab as well as on the exams . Note that the aforementioned reactions can appear on exams in any form whether they have been discussed in Chem 143B lecture or not so be sure to be prepared. We will learn some new reactions in this class and the reactions mentioned previously will serve as a basis for understanding these new transformations. Of course, new reactions will not be tested until after they are presented in lecture. It is also assumed that you are intimately familar with the major functional group names, structures
