CHEM 312 introduces students to advanced techniques used in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of inorganic and organic compounds. It is a course designed to serve as a transition between laboratory and research laboratory work. The course emphasizes methods for handling air-sensitive material such as organometallics compounds, and includes syringe techniques, working under vacuum or inert gas atmospheres, vacuum distillations as well as various chromatographic and spectroscopic techniques. The course meets in two four-hour laboratory periods. Some of that time may be used for discussion of techniques and principles. Grades are based on laboratory performance, written reports, and examinations.

Textbook: "Structure Determination of Organic Compounds", by Pretsch.
