Microscale glassware and analytical techniques are used to study fundamental organic reactions and the synthesis of organic compounds. Techniques include distillation (simple, fractional, and steam), crystallization, and extraction. Analysis of compounds includes melting points, boiling points, refractive indices, infrared spectroscopy, and chromatography (gas, thin layer, column). This meets the Organic Laboratory requirement necessary to enter into Pharmacy, Medical, Dental, and Veterinary schools. Many schools require students to also take Organic Lab II CHEM-244. Approximately one hour of lecture and three hours of lab per week.
