Martin, Christopher B.; Schmidt, Monica; Soniat, Michael
Journal of Chemical Education, v88 n12 p1630-1638 Dec 2011
A survey was conducted of four-year institutions that teach undergraduate organic chemistry laboratories in the United States. The data include results from over 130 schools, describes the current practices at these institutions, and discusses the statistical results such as the scale of the laboratories performed, the chemical techniques applied, the instrumentation available, the laboratory equipment used, the chemistry topics covered, the way chemical safety is presented, and how chemical waste is handled. These results provide a "snapshot" of the current state of the undergraduate organic teaching laboratory. (Contains 11 tables and 1 figure.)
