The four main objectives of this course are: 1) to successfully perform a broad range of traditional organic chemistry
2) to demonstrate competency in characterizing
reactants, products and unknown organic compounds both
by physical and by spectroscopic properties with an emphasis on spectroscopy 3) to apply a broad range of modern
microscale organic chemistry techniques
safely while performing reactions, and 4) to demonstrate a general
knowledge of each reaction, and of standard laboratory practices.
In other words, you will run many well known
reactions, analyze evidence that you made or isolated what you proposed in each case, and do it in a manner that is
safe, current, and organized in a reproducible manner in a proper notebook.
Lecture must be attended before each laboratory session unless you are otherwise directed to go straight to lab.
sure to check blackboard announcements and your email before coming to lab.
Lecture will consist mainly of an
opportunity to review the procedures and the techniques associated with the lab work.
You are expected to attend
lab only during your section.
All students are allowed the same amount of time to complete the assigned work.
Exiting when the first bell rings is required.
Exiting will be a part of your lab work grade; it will start out as a full 20
point lab with points subtracted during the semester for leaving late (after the first bell).
Excused Absences and Late Work
An email permission slip, obtained from you instructor before
missing lab, will be needed in order to attend a section
other than your own to make up missed time.
A copy of the actual email response must
be in your possession during
the make-up lab, and that same copy signed and dated by a TA
be turned in with any late work in order to
receive full credit.
Late work due to absence must
be turned in within one week
of the missed lab.
This includes any
work that may have been due on the date missed.
Work that is turned in late without
an email permission slip will be
docked 2 points for each school day it is late, up to 10 points, not including any points missed due to errors.
turned in more than a week late will be docked the full 20 points.
