Annotated List of Chemistry Laboratory Experiments with Computer Access. Final Report.
Bunce, S. C.; And Others
Project Chemlab was designed to prepare an "Annotated List of Laboratory Experiments in Chemistry from the Journal of Chemical Education (1957-1979)" and to develop a computer file and program to search for specific types of experiments. Provided in this document are listings (photoreduced copies of printouts) of over 1500 entries classified into seven major fields of chemistry and arranged alphabetically by author within each field. These fields include: analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, polymer chemistry, and radiochemistry. Each entry contains a field code, a keyword code (to facilitate visual scanning of the lists and for use in searching the computer file), a code indicating background required, and the nature of the experiment. In addition, special requirements/hazards and time commitment are noted when applicable. The introduction to the listings contains definitions of keywords used and an explanation for the background requirement codes. The overall document consists of a 3-page summary of the project (including information on how the lists were produced), 12 pages of appendices consisting of copies of four project newsletters (two of these newsletters contain instructions for accessing and searching the computer file on the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) computer by dial-up modem), and 360 pages of appendices consisting of the list of experiments.
