Additional Book Details

Those familiar with previous editions of Addison Ault's book will be pleased to see that the sixth edition is still an excellent text for the introductory organic chemistry laboratory. Ault's book is full of experiments that use "interesting" compounds, compounds with which students are likely to be familiar.  Those new to Ault's text will find a well written laboratory manual that clearly reflects that author's years of experience.

" Those familiar with previous editions of Addison Ault's book will be pleased to see that the sixth edition is still an excellent text for the introductory organic chemistry laboratory...Ault's book is full of experiments that use "interesting" compounds, compounds with which students are likely to be familiar. Those new to Ault's text will find a well written laboratory manual that clearly reflects that author's years of experience. It is thorough, describing all the common lab techniques in Part 1 and giving concise, well-written directions for experiments in Part 2. The experiments provide an excellent representation of all the important reactions in a typical course. In fact, for most types of reactions there are several experiments from which to choose. Most experiments are written at the few- to several-gram scale, so that waste is minimized, but the esthetics of organic chemistry is maintained... Ault's book is an excellent text." –Journal of Chemical Education

Key Features of This Edition:

Provides information on safety, glassware, lab cleanup, collection and disposal of waste, preparation of the laboratory notebook, and use of the chemical literature.
Provides clear instructions on how to perform the procedures that are used.
Appeals to the esthetic dimension by offering experiments in a variety of scales –from micro scale to semi-micro and to 5- and 10-gram scale.
Includes descriptions of the interpretation of IR, UV/Vis, NMR and mass spectra.
Gives procedures for the isolation of organic compounds from familiar materials such as nutmeg, cloves, citrus rind, tea, cola, NoDoz, aspirin, ibuprofen, milk and gallstones.
Gives "recipes" for the preparation of organic compounds that illustrate many of the reactions that are discussed in the lecture part of the course.
Gives procedures for the preparation of compounds with interesting properties: compounds that produce light, change color when heated, have different colors in different solvents, or turn blue in the sun.
Includes the famous "bootstrap synthesis": the preparation of two molecules from one.
Includes procedures for the preparation of 7 different compounds from vanillin.
