Description

Providing even more emphasis on inquiry-based learning, a new green experiment, and more than a dozen new discovery experiments, this Fifth Edition of Martin and Gilbert's proven Organic Chemistry Lab Experiments: Miniscale & Microscale, International Edition contains procedures for both miniscale (also known as small scale) and microscale users. The manual first provides an early focus on equipment, record keeping, and safety in the laboratory, then walks students step by step through the laboratory techniques they need to perform the book's experiments with confidence. Chapters show students how to use the book's techniques to synthesize compounds and analyze their properties, complete multi-step syntheses of organic compounds, and solve structures of unknown compounds. A bioorganic experiment in Chapter 24 reflects the increasing emphasis on bioorganic chemistry in the course and gives students an opportunity to accomplish a mechanistically interesting and synthetically important coupling of two a-amino acids to produce a dipeptide.

Author Biography

Jack Gilbert joined the faculty of the University of Texas at Austin in 1965 and moved to Santa Clara University in 2007, where he is Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry. He received the Advisory Council Teaching Excellence Award at UT the 2002-2003 academic year, as well as many other recognitions in teaching. While at UT, he co-authored several editions of the first laboratory textbook in organic chemistry that emphasized reactions mechanisms, as well as laboratory techniques, including spectroscopy. He continues to update the textbook, now with the able assistance of Steve Martin. Stephen Martin received his B. S. degree in chemistry from the University of New Mexico in 1968 and his Ph.D. degree from Princeton University in 1972. After postdoctoral years at the University of Munich and MIT, he joined the faculty at The University of Texas at Austin in 1974, where he currently holds the M. June and J. Virgil Waggoner Regents Chair in Chemistry. His research interests lie broadly in organic and bioorganic chemistry. In the former area, his endeavors involve developing and applying new methods and strategies to the syntheses of biologically active natural and non-natural products, especially those containing nitrogen and oxygen heterocyclic subunits. In the biological arena, he is studying fundamental aspects of molecular recognition in biological systems with a particular focus on how making specific structural changes in a ligand, particularly with respect to preorganization and nonpolar surface area, affect energetics and dynamics in protein-ligand interactions. He has received a number of awards including a NIH Career Development Award, an American Cyanamid Academic Award, an Alexander von Humboldt Award, an Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award, a Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science Award, a Wyeth Research Award, and the International Society of Heterocyclic Chemistry Senior Award. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and has served as a consultant for a number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. He is the regional editor of "Tetrahedron for the Americas." He has delivered numerous invited lectures at national and international meetings, academic institutions, and industrial companies, and has published over 300 scientific papers in primary journals together with several reviews and articles in books. He is also co-author of "Experimental Organic Chemistry: A Miniscale and Microscale Approach."
