This exercise is ideal for introduction to organic experiments as it helps students to become familiar with four main steps of organic synthesis:
In this virtual experiment, students synthesize acetylsalicylic acid, the active ingredient of Aspirin. Students learn the mechanism of the reaction and rationale for the experimental procedures through videos and questions.
In this exercise, students perform acid-base titrations. In the first part, students perform a strong acid-strong base titration. In the second part, they perform a strong acid-weak base titration. The postlab questions guide them to learn the reason for obtaining different equivalence pH values obtained in these two titrations, while understanding the importance of choosing the right indicator.
In this virtual experiment, students perform a Fischer esterification reaction to synthesize isopentyl acetate. Students learn the mechanism of the reaction and rationale for the experimental procedures through videos and questions.
This virtual experiment focuses on the principles of liquid liquid extraction. In the first part, students are guided to perform an extraction while being presented with the underlying chemistry. In the second part, students will perform an extraction to determine their unknown mixture.
This virtual experiment includes synthesis of stilbene dibromide via two synthetic pathways. Students are then asked to compare the two reactions with respect to green chemistry metrics such as atom economy, E factor and and process mass intensity.
In this virtual experiment, students perform a microscale extraction to isolate salicyliacid from its contaminate. This is a short experiment, demonstrating the basic principles of a microscale extraction.
