the purpose of this current edition of the microscale lab book is to teach students the techniques of organic chemistry. We desire to share our joy and love of the organic chemistry lab with our students! in this edition, we include many new up-to-date experiments that will demonstrate how organic chemistry is evolving. For example, there are new experiments involving nanotechnology and biofuels. We also include several new experiments based on nobel Prize awards, such as using organome- tallic catalysts for synthesis (Sonogashira Coupling of iodosubstituted Aromatic Compounds with Alkynes Using a Palladium Catalyst and Grubbs- Catalyzed Metathesis of Eugenol with 1,4-Butendiol to Prepare a natural Product). Also included is a synthesis of the pharmaceutical drug Aleve® (naproxen) in a project- based experiment. this experiment includes a resolution step and makes extensive use of nMR spectroscopy. there are several new Green Chemistry experiments, and the “green” aspects of experiments from our previous book have been improved. We think that you will be enthusiastic about this new edition. Many of the new experiments will not be found in other laboratory manuals, but we have been care- ful to retain all of the standard reactions and techniques, such as the Friedel-Crafts reaction, the aldol condensation, Grignard synthesis, and basic experiments de- signed to teach crystallization, chromatography, and distillation.
S C A L E I N T H E O R G A N I C L A B O R A T O R Y Experiments in organic chemistry can be conducted at different scales using vary- ing amounts of chemicals and different styles of glassware. We have two versions of our laboratory textbooks that teach organic laboratory techniques. this microscale book (A Microscale Approach to Organic Laboratory Techniques, Fifth Edition) makes use of ts 14/10 standard-tapered glassware. our version of a “macroscale” textbook (A Small Scale Approach to Organic Laboratory Techniques) uses the traditional larger scale ts 19/22 standard-tapered glassware. the third edition of our small scale book was published in 2011.

over the years that we have been involved with developing experiments, we have learned that students can easily adjust to working with small laboratory equipment. Perhaps we can thank our colleagues who teach analytical techniques in general chemistry for demonstrating that students can learn to be meticulous and work with small amounts of material in many traditional experiments. As stu- dents and faculty learn to appreciate the impact of laboratory experiments on the environment, they become more aware that it is not necessary to consume large quantities of chemicals. Students come to appreciate the importance of reducing waste generated in the organic laboratory. All of us, students and faculty alike, are becoming more “green.”

organic chemistry significantly impacts our lives in the real world. organic chem- istry plays a major role in industry, medicine, and consumer products. Composite plastics are increasingly used in cars and airplanes to cut weight while increasing strength. Biodiesel is a hot topic today as we try to find ways of reducing our need for petroleum, and replacing it with materials that are renewable. We need to replace the resources that we consume.
A number of experiments are linked together to create multistep syntheses. the advantage of this approach is that you will be doing something different from your neighbor in the laboratory. Wouldn’t you like to be doing something different from your neighbor? You may be synthesizing a new compound that hasn’t been reported in the chemical literature! You will not be all doing the same reaction on the same compounds: an example of this is the chalcone reaction, followed by the green epoxidation and cyclopropanation of the resulting chalcones.
N E W T O T H I S E D I T I O N Since the fourth edition of our microscale textbook appeared in 2007, there have been new developments in the teaching of organic chemistry laboratory. this fifth edition includes many new experiments that reflect these new developments and includes significant updating of the essays and techniques chapters.
new experiments added for this edition include:
Experiment 1 Solubility: Part F nanotechnology demonstration Experiment 27 Biodiesel Experiment 31 Borneol oxidation to camphor, new procedure Experiment 34 Sonogashira Coupling of iodoaromatic Compounds with
Alkynes Experiment 35 Grubb’s-Catalyzed Metathesis of Eugenol with cis-1,4-
Butenediol Experiment 44 n,n-diethyl-m-toluamide (oFF), new procedure Experiment 48 diels-Alder Reaction with Anthracene-9-methanol Experiment 52 identification of Unknowns, revised procedure Experiment 55 Competing nucleophiles in Sn1 and Sn2 Reactions: investi-
gations Using 2-Pentanol and 3-Pentanol Experiment 56 Friedel-Crafts, more substrates added Experiment 58 Aqueous-Based organozinc Reactions

Experiment 59 Synthesis of naproxen (Aleve®) by palladium catalysis Experiment 62 Green Epoxidation of Chalcones Experiment 63 Cyclopropanation of Chalcones
We have included a new essay “Biofuels.” Substantial revisions were made to the “Petroleum and Fossil Fuels”essay and “the Chemistry of Sweeteners”essay. other essays have been updated as well.
We have made a number of improvements in this edition that significantly improve safety in the laboratory. We have added several new experiments that incorporate the principles of Green Chemistry. the Green Chemistry experiments decrease the need for hazardous waste disposal, leading to reduced contami- nation of the environment. these experiments involve techniques such as solid phase extraction and the use of a microwave reactor. other experiments have been modified to reduce their use of hazardous solvents. the “Green Chemistry” essayhas been revised. in our view, it is most timely that students begin to think about how to conduct chemical experiments in a more environmentally benign manner. Many other experiments have been modified to improve their reliability and safety.
in keeping with the Green Chemistry approach, we have suggested an alternative way of approaching qualitative organic analysis. this approach makes extensive use of spectroscopy to solve the structure of organic unknowns. in this approach, some of the traditional tests have been retained, but the main empha- sis is on using spectroscopy. in this way, we have attempted to show students how to solve structures in a more modern way, similar to that used in a research laboratory. the added advantage to this approach is that waste is considerably reduced.
new techniques have been introduced in this edition. Chiral gas chromatogra- phy has been included in the analysis of the products obtained from the resolution of a-phenylethylamine (Experiment 30) and the products from the chiral reduction of ethyl acetoacetate (Experiment 28). A new method of obtaining boiling points using a temperature probe with a Vernier LabPro interface or digital thermometer has been introduced.
Many of the techniques chapters have been updated. new problems have been added to the chapters on infrared and nMR spectroscopy (techniques 25, 26, and 27). Many of the old 60 Mhz nMR spectra have been replaced by more modern 300 Mhz spectra. As in previous editions, the techniques chapters include both microscale and macroscale methods.

O V E R A L L S T R U C T U R E O F T H E B O O K this textbook is divided into two major sections (see table of Contents). the first section, which includes Part one through Part Five, contains all of the experiments in this book. the second major section includes only Part Six, which contains all of the important techniques you will use in performing the experiments in this book. interspersed among the experiments in Part one through Part three is a series of essays. the essays provide a context for many of the experiments and often relate the experiment to real world applications. When your instructor assigns an experiment, he or she will often assign an essay and/or several techniques chapters along with the experiment. Before you come to lab, you should read all of these. in addition, it is likely that you will need to prepare some sections in your laboratory notebook (see technique 2) before you come to the lab.
S T R U C T U R E O F T H E E X P E R I M E N T S in this section we discuss how each experiment is organized in the textbook. to follow this discussion, you may want to refer to a specific experiment, such as Experiment 13.
Multiple Parts Experiments
Some experiments, such as Experiment 13, are divided into two or more indi- vidual parts that are designated by the experiment number and the letters A, B, etc. in some experiments, like Experiment 13, each part is a separate but related experiment, and you will most likely perform only one part. in Experiment 13, you would do Experiment 13A (isolation of Caffeine from tea Leaves) or Experi- ment 13B (isolation of Caffeine from a tea Bag). in other experiments, for example Experiment 32, the various parts can be linked together to form a multistep synthe- sis. in a few experiments, such as Experiment 22, the last part describes how you should analyze your final product.
Featured Topics and Techniques Lists
directly under the title of each experiment (see Experiment 13), there will be a list of topics. these topics may explain what kind of experiment it is, such as isola- tion of a natural product or Green Chemistry. the topics may also include major techniques that are required to perform the experiment, such as crystallization or extraction.
How To Use This Book
06524_fm_ptg01_i-xx.indd 13 12/29/11 1:40:56 PM
xiv How To Use This Book
in the introduction to each experiment, there will be a section labeled Required Reading. Within this section, some of the required readings are labeled Review and some are labeled new. You should always read the chapters listed in the new section. Sometimes it will also be helpful to do the readings in the Review section.
You should always read this section since it may include instructions that are es- sential to the success of the experiment.
Suggested Waste Disposal
this very important section gives instructions on how to dispose of the waste gen- erated in an experiment. often your instructor will provide you with additional instructions on how to handle the waste.
Notes to Instructor
it will usually not be necessary to read this section. this section provides special advice for the instructor that will help to make the experiment successful.
this section provides detailed instructions on how to carry out the experiments. Within the procedure, there will be many references to the techniques chapters, which you may need to consult in order to perform an experiment.
in some experiments, specific suggestions for what should be included in the labo- ratory report will be given. Your instructor may refer to these recommendations or may have other directions for you to follow.
At the end of most experiments will be a list of questions related to the experiment. it is likely that your instructor will assign at least some of these questions along with the laboratory report.
