Success in an experimental science such as chemistry depends on good
laboratory practice, a knowledge of basic techniques, and the intelligent and
careful handling of chemicals.

practice in the organic chemistry lab with hints and tips on successful organic
synthesis. Topics covered include: safety in the laboratory environmentally
responsible handling of chemicals and solvents crystallisation distillation
chromatographic methods extraction and work-up structure determination by
spectroscopic methods searching the chemical literature laboratory notebooks
writing a report hints on the synthesis of organic compounds disposal and
destruction of dangerous materials drying and purifying solvents
Practical Organic Synthesis is based on a successful course in basic organic
chemistry laboratory practice which has run for several years at the ETH,
Zurich and the University of Berne, and its course book Grundoperationen, now
in its sixth edition.
Condensing over 30 years of the authors’ organic laboratory teaching
experience into one easy-to-read volume, Practical Organic Synthesis is an
essential guide for those new to the organic chemistry laboratory, and a handy
benchtop guide for practising organic chemists.
