An Advanced Chemistry Laboratory Program.
Wise, John H.
The Advanced Chemistry Laboratory Program is a project designed to devise experiments to coordinate the use of instruments in the laboratory programs of physical chemistry, instrumental analysis, and inorganic chemistry at the advanced undergraduate level. It is intended that such experiments would incorporate an introduction to the instrument employing a descriptive as well as a theoretical point of view and use of the instrument as a physical tool as well as an analytical device. Also of interest in this project was the possibility of including the preparation of inorganic or organo-metallic compounds as the working substances for the instrumental experiments. The results of the laboratory program revealed that (1) an inorganic preparation followed by instrumental experiments to confirm structure or to provide analytical information can be used as the basis of an integrated experiment for advanced chemistry students, and (2) most of the more rapid preparations require very little variety in the laboratory techniques of preparative chamistry.
