This chemistry laboratory course accompanies Chemistry 14C and provides the organic chemistry lab component necessary for pre-medical and pre-health students. This is the second lab course for the organic chemistry series.
Determine if a chemical reaction has taken place and predict the reaction products
Analyze lab protocols and perform procedures for synthesis and analysis of organic compounds
Recognize hydrophobic and hydrophilic interactions and predict the product
Write balanced chemical equations for reactions
Synthesize and purify a compound and analyze it using spectroscopic techniques
Understand retrosynthetic analysis
About this course:
This laboratory class covers the synthesis and analysis of compounds; purification by extraction, chromatography, recrystallization, and sublimation; characterization by mass spectroscopy; UV, NMR, and IR spectroscopy; optical activity; electrochemistry; and pH titration. Transferable for UC credit.
CHEM 14B, CHEM 14BL, and CHEM 14C with grades of C- or better.
