Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. safely handle laboratory glassware, equipment, chemicals, and generated waste in accordance with waste disposal and safety regulations.
2. maintain a laboratory notebook according to course guidelines.
3. practice basic laboratory techniques used for the preparation, purification, and separation of organic compounds and apply the laboratory techniques to single-step organic transformations.
4. use instrumentation such as gas chromatographs, polarimeters, infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers for the identification of organic compounds and interpret data acquired from these instruments.
5. use experimental data to calculate reaction metrics such as yield and atom economy.
6. correlate organic chemistry theory with experimental outcomes.
7. locate current and archival chemical literature and then report literature information and experimental results in the quality and form of a scientific journal article.
8. articulate and follow ethical principles in a scientific context, including professional standards of laboratory practice.
