The most comprehensive textbook and detailed presentation of the lab techniques organic chemistry students need to know. Compatible with any organic chemistry lab manual or set of experiments, it combines specific instructions for three different kinds of laboratory glassware: miniscale, standard taper microscale, and Williamson microscale. This title provides effective support to all those looking for guided-inquiry and design-based experiments and projects, as well as for traditional lab experiments.
This title is for organic students of all levels looking to improve and understand their knowledge of lab work. With new authors David Alberg and Gretchen Hofmeister on board for this fourth edition, both bring copious amounts of experience in organic chemistry. They have been able to revive the writing in the book, while also adding new examples and pitfalls for students to avoid.
