Info about specific chemicals
When approaching new techniques, you should first make
sure you understand the absolute basics as laid out in Zubrick's The
Organic Chem Lab Survival Manual
. You used this book during the
CHEM 233/234 sequence. The Advanced Lab (Tom 001) has a copy of the more
detailed Techniques in Organic Chemistry
by Mohrig, Hammond
and Schatz. Following are further resources.
