This class provides laboratory experiments to accompany CHEM 2003. You will learn separation and purification techniques and quantitative methods in organic chemistry. You will also be introduced to organic synthesis.
CHEM 1241 and concurrent enrollment in CHEM 2003
Lab Reports: Lab reports will be STAPLED and turned in to the instructor. Prelab reports are due at the start of the lab. Once a lab is complete you will turn in a post lab and take a quiz over that lab the following lab period.
Pre-Lab consists of sections 1-4.
Post Lab consists of sections 5-8.
Pre labs are to be turned in prior to the start of the experiment.
Post labs are due the following lab period after experiment is complete.
For the Pre Lab write-up (Always include name, date, lab number, etc. on the top of every page):
1. Main Idea. Write a brief sentence or two describing what you expected to learn or to accomplish along with a reaction (If applicable).
2. Reaction(s). Include all possible reactions that might occur in the lab for that week. If there is no reaction then write there are no reactions for this lab.
3. Table of physical constants. Include a Table of Physicals Constants which should include name of chemicals used or synthesized, MW, mp/bp, density, structure, and any special hazard/cautionary notes.
4. Prelab questions
Two web sites that will assist in chemical property data collection are listed below.
Below is a web site for structures which can be used to obtain spectroscopic data
For the Post lab write-up (Always include name, date, lab number, etc. on the top of every page):
5. Data and observations. This is the procedure section. As you perform your lab write down in your lab book the methods you are doing and data you are obtaining. For any melting or boiling point that you measure, the literature value should also be reported. The spectra obtained should be labeled and stapled (IR, NMR, UV) to the back of your report.
6. Calculations. This section must include all calculations. Be sure to label all calculations clearly.
7. Conclusions. This is especially important for investigative type experiments. Discuss results obtained with respect to anticipated findings, any errors that may have caused your results to deviate from what was expected, and any side reactions that may have decreased yields. Summarize what you learned. Discuss your data!!!!!!!!
8. Post lab Questions. Answer the post lab questions from the experiment.
Discuss with professor individually
For attendance -- All students should refer to the MSU Student Handbook for university policies related student responsibilities, rights and activities
Your lab final will be given on your lab day during the last week of classes (Nov29-Dec3).
