Overview

Subject code

CHEM

Course Number

3033

Department(s)

Description

Laboratory component of CHEM 3032. This course will continue to develop the synthesis, purification, and instrumentation techniques and skills required to: conduct a modernized oxidation reaction (IBX), an air and moisture sensitive organometalics reaction (Grignard), and an asymmetric reduction reaction. Students will use new instruments, including the polarimeter and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry. Students will learn how to critically read current literature articles and formally present them to the class. Finally, students will cap their organic laboratory education with a 5-week project to uncover the identity of 2 assigned unknown compounds using qualitative chemical tests and instrumentation. A $75 lab fee will apply for any in-person sections (excluding Military Campus programs).
