Organic Chemistry Lab

On this page you will find information regarding check-in, specialized organic glassware, safety, basic organic laboratory skills, and equipment you may use in lab. Hopefully, the information will help you better understand what you will do in lab prior to the beginning of the lab period. The more you understand before lab, the shorter the pre-lab lectures will be and the faster you will be able to finish the laboratory exercises.
