A Guide Through Experiments
Combining theoretical knowledge of synthetic transformations, practical considerations, structural elucidation by interpretation of spectroscopic data as well as rationalization of structure-property relations, this textbook presents a series of 16 independent exercises, including detailed descriptions of experimental procedures, questions, and answers. The experimental descriptions are very helpful for guiding less experienced students towards a better understanding of practical aspects in synthetic organic chemistry, while the broad scope of the questions and answers is excellent for learning purposes. The exercises are based on published research articles, adapted for didactic purposes, and will thus inspire students by way of having to solve real-life problems in chemistry.
A must-have for MSc and PhD students as well as postdocs in organic chemistry and related disciplines, and lecturers and organizers of lab courses in organic chemistry.
