Written in a straightforward manner, this laboratory manual for a two-semester organic chemistry course provides only the essential background material, laboratory set-ups, and procedures for each exercise. The exercises have been carefully written to minimize set-up time and eliminate the need for elaborate and expensive laboratory equipment. Laboratory techniques are emphasized rather than theoretical understanding.
