Experimental Organic Chemistry: A Miniscale and Microscale Approach, 6th Edition.


Experimental Organic Chemistry: A Miniscale and Microscale Approach, 6th Edition

John C. Gilbert and Stephan F. Martin

Cengage Learning


931 pages



Cengage Laboratory Series for Organic Chemistry


The miniscale and microscale approaches of this text for undergraduate laboratory courses are practical responses to concerns about the environmental effects of chemicals and their disposal, rising costs of chemicals, and increased awareness of the hazards of exposure in the lab. Gilbert and Martin have chosen experiments based on the dual aims of reinforcing concepts presented in standard lecture courses and teaching the techniques routinely used by modern organic chemists. Each experimental procedure opens with a focused theoretical discussion, making the text self-contained yet non-redundant with lecture texts. The sixth edition adds 15 experiments and an online tutorial option, and moves the chapters on identifying organic compounds and the literature of organic chemistry to the companion website.
