    Course Highlights


    This site features detailed descriptions of the five experiments completed by students in the course during the semester: unknown amino acid, ferrocene, essential oils, potentiometric titration, and kinetics.


    Course Description


    Laboratory Chemistry (5.310) introduces experimental chemistry for students requiring a chemistry laboratory who are not majoring in chemistry. Students must have completed general chemistry (5.111) and have completed or be concurrently enrolled in the first semester of organic chemistry (5.12). The course covers principles and applications of chemical laboratory techniques, including preparation and analysis of chemical materials, measurement of pH, gas and liquid chromatography, visible-ultraviolet spectrophotometry, infrared spectroscopy, kinetics, data analysis, and elementary synthesis.


    NOTE: The Staff for this course would like to acknowledge that the experiments include contributions from past instructors, course textbooks, and others affiliated with course #5.310. Since the following works have evolved over a period of many years, no single source can be attributed.
