Students are acquainted with all basic laboratory procedures in this text which co-ordinates enough theory and technique to enable readers to fully comprehend the reactions being studied and the procedures involved. Material is organized in four sections: techniques, experiments, organic qualitative analysis, and appendixes. The first section introduces students to all common organic techniques and provides an illustrative experiment with each. A unique format helps train the research-oriented student to look for relationships that are not immediately apparent. The experiments section moves on to more complex experiments involving synthetic procedures followed by work-up and analysis requiring more than one technique. Instructions are complete and easy to follow, and a set of pre-laboratory experiments encourages students to determine goals before beginning lab work. The appendixes cover less referred-to techniques: sublimation, density determination, and molecular weight determinations; and contain a pronunciation guide and a compilation of chemical hazards.
