This flexible, reliable, accurate manual includes both macroscale and microscale procedures for each experiment. The level and writing style of the text, which emphasizes biochemical and biomedical applications, make it ideally suited for the mainstream organic chemistry laboratory.Microscale experiment options allow instructors to purchase costly chemicals in small quantities while minimizing issues of environmental impact and hazardous waste disposal. Macroscale versions can be used for less costly experiments, giving students experience with the manipulation of conventional glassware. A student CD-ROM includes videos and photos related to the material in the text. Videos feature the exact glassware required for each experiment and demonstrate techniques for how to conduct experiments successfully and safely. Photos show lab equipment set-ups.
Icons throughout the text direct students to the corresponding videos and photos on the CD-ROM. A letter or number code allows students to search the CD-ROM for the appropriate technique.
"In this Experiment" is a new feature that appears before every microscale experiment. It presents the objective of the experiment and keeps students from getting bogged down in the minute details of experimental procedures.
An instructor web site provides a forum where instructors can communicate directly with the text author about specific experiments and the implementation of microscale techniques. The site also includes PDF files from the Instructor's Resource Manual.
Material on mass spectroscopy has been added to Chapter 14.
