Introduction and Course Description:
Chemistry 129A, Introductory Organic Chemistry Laboratory, is a two unit laboratory course meeting in either Science 372 or S 370. This is the first semester of a one year laboratory course in organic chemistry. As such, it is primarily concerned with introducing the tools and techniques that chemists use to investigate the nature of organic compounds. Some of these techniques are the same or similar to those familiar to you from general chemistry: you probably already know how to use an analytical balance, perform a titration with a burette, separate solids from liquids by filtration or centrifugation, collect gases by displacement of water, and perform simple qualitative tests with test tubes and droppers. To this basic list we will add liquid/liquid and liquid/solid extractions, crystallization, TLC, column and gas chromatography, simple and fractional distillations, melting point and boiling point determinations, polarimetry, and infrared spectroscopy. Because some of the experiments are performed using very small amounts of material
