CHEM 4913L Advanced Synthesis Laboratory 0/6/2

Prerequisite: CHEM 3422 with a minimum grade of C and ( CHEM 4611 or CHEM 4612 )

This laboratory course involves non-trivial synthesis of organic and inorganic molecules by a variety of advanced techniques (vacuum line, inert atmosphere, high/low temperature, etc.). Spectroscopic (FT-NMR, IR, UV, etc.) and computational methods are used to investigate characterize, and compare experimental and theoretical properties of the synthesized molecules. Special emphasis will be placed on writing skills. CHEM 4611 or CHEM 4612 may be taken concurrently.
