CHEM 2123 & 2023 \u2013 ORGANIC CHEMISTRY LABORATORY I& RECITATION
Fall 2008 - All sections
Professor: Dr. Sergio Cortes
Office: BE 3.330
Phone: 972-883-6801
Hours: TBA
Email: s c o r tes@ u td a llas . e du
Website: h ttp ://u td allas.edu /~s co rtes/o ch em/ in d ex .h tm
Course Pre-requisites: General Chemistry I and II or equivalent (lecture and laboratory)
Course Description

This is an introduction to basic experimental technique and information sources. Major topics include safety, record
keeping, written communication, information sources, physical separations, determination of physical constants,
purification and characterization techniques, and basic organic reactions. An important goal of this course is to
master technique before shifting the focus to outcome in Organic Chem. Lab II. Correlation with the organic lecture
is adequate, but practical factors prevent full overlap.

Student Learning Objectives/Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will:
\u2022
Be able to describe and utilize safety protocols associated with basic organic chemistry laboratory operations.
\u2022
Know how to keep written records, produce reports of experiments, interpret experimental data and draw
relevant conclusions.
\u2022
Be able to prepare, purify, and characterize simple organic compounds.
\u2022
Know how to work and communicate effectively in small groups and teams.
Required Textbooks and Materials
TEXTBOOK: Pavia, Lampman, Kriz, and Engel. Introduction to Organic Laboratory Techniques: A Microscale
Approach. 4th ed. Thomson Brooks/Cole, 2007.
SUPPLIES: The list below is good for two semesters of organic lab. Supplies must be obtained by Check-in week
(typically the second full week of class).
\u2022
HARDBOUND NOTEBOOK with duplicate sheets (carbon copies)
\u2022
APPROVED SAFETY GLASSES: Must have theZ87 code engraved on them. The spectacle type is
recommended over the goggle type. Spectacles look like regular glasses, are comfortable, and can be worn
over prescription glasses. Goggles are uncomfortable, promote sweating, and fog up, thereby impairing vision.

\u2022
DISHWASHING GLOVES: Can be obtained at any store.

such as Sears, and at most uniform and medical supplies stores (scrubs are OK too).
\u2022
ITEMS OF PERSONAL USE: Hand soap, towel, economy sponge pack, tweezers, marker or pen, and
masking tape (used for labeling).
