Smith, Catherine J.; Mansfield, Steven J.; Anderson, Edward A.; Burton, Jonathan W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Organic synthesis in a modern research laboratory uses state-of-the-art equipment to provide inert atmospheres, track reaction progress, and facilitate the purification of intermediates. Such facilities are not available in a high school laboratory. In this paper, synthetic organic chemistry is taken back to basics: A four step total synthesis of…

Limpanuparb, Taweetham; Kanithasevi, Siradanai; Lojanarungsiri, Maytouch; Pakwilaikiat, Puh – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
We discuss the use of a simple piece of equipment made of a 50 mL syringe attached to a 2 mL graduated pipet to demonstrate Boyle's law and Charles's law. A plot of the hydrostatic pressure against the reciprocal of the volume of the gas read from the equipment is linear as discussed in the paper and gives the atmospheric pressure at the…

LeSuer, Robert J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Consumer-grade manufacturing tools such as 3D printers are becoming increasingly prevalent in STEM education environments, especially as tools to develop inexpensive, tactile visualization models. Presented here is a workflow for creating 3D-printed periodic tables displaying a variety of trends from traditionally taught relationships such as…

Tan, Shun Yu; Hölttä-Otto, Katja; Anariba, Franklin – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A hands-on design activity named "electrochemistry designette" that incorporates design thinking with the aims to strengthen electrochemistry concepts, introduce prototyping ideas, encourage student class participation, and foster creativity is presented. This active learning activity, which lies at the interface of design and…

Wiggins, Marcie B.; Heath, Emma; Alcántara-García, Jocelyn – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The interface of art and science provides a broad range of educational and collaborative projects at various learning stages. Therefore, the use of historic artists' materials for teaching chemistry is receiving more attention. We prepared and used copper acetate (verdigris pigment) for a series of interconnected, lab-based activities, which can…

Schneider, Elia M.; Bärtsch, Amadeus; Stark, Wendelin J.; Grass, Robert N. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A simple synthesis of fluorescent carbon quantum dots from lemon juice is described to introduce advanced high-school students and undergraduate college students to nanoparticle synthesis and quantum dots. The synthesis is based on the carbonization of lemon juice using only a hot plate stirrer. Column chromatography is used to separate different…

Dean, Natalie L.; Ewan, Corrina; Braden, Douglas; McIndoe, J. Scott – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Comprehension of the 3D structure of objects usually represented in 2D is a critical part of understanding molecular geometries. The frequency with which students actually get hands-on with 3D molecular structures is often limited to a singular laboratory session. We sought to develop a set of molecular shapes that were inexpensive enough not only…

Njoki, Peter N. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A laboratory experiment has been developed to illustrate the transformation of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) in water containing phosphate anions. The experiment, conducted by high school students, involved hands-on learning to synthesize and characterize Ag NPs via ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy. This was followed by a UV-vis probe of…

Budke, Michael; Parchmann, Ilka; Beeken, Marco – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
In the past 20 years, science education in schools has increasingly been supported by extracurricular learning opportunities. From the point of view of pupils and teachers, student laboratories make meaningful contributions to complement the teaching of science. Studies have shown that participation in student laboratories has increased students'…

da Silva, José Nunes, Jr.; Lim, Mary Anne Sousa; Miranda, Fátima Nunes; Leite, Antonio José Melo, Jr.; Alexandre, Francisco Serra Oliveira; Assis, Djheyson Carlos de Oliveira; Nobre, Davi Janô – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
This report provides information about an interactive computer-based game named Nomenclature Bets and its utilization in the form of a tournament as a didactic strategy to enhance the students' interest in their studies of nomenclature of organic compounds. The game allows high school and first-year undergraduate students to review, in pairs, the…

Koh, Sam Boon Kiat; Fung, Fun Man – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
A mobile application game has been adapted to teach students about laboratory instruments, glassware, apparatus, and techniques. The game was designed with reference to a popular icebreaker game, "Charades!", to ensure that it was easily accessible to students. Students will hold a mobile phone just above their forehead, which will then…

Nehring, Andreas; Busch, Sebastian – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Although many chemistry demonstrations are proposed in educational literature, there are hardly any studies on how demonstrations should be set up in order to support students' perception. Against this background, the aim of the present study was to present and test setup principles for chemistry demonstrations, with regards to indicators of…

Ardisara, Alvita; Fung, Fun Man – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
With 360° cameras becoming increasingly available at affordable costs, 360° videos have been gaining momentum online as an exciting visual medium that engages viewers in an immersive 360° panoramic view. In this report, we share insights of our experience in using 360° cameras to capture several laboratory techniques in an undergraduate organic…

Mac Fhionnlaoich, Niamh; Ibsen, Stuart; Serrano, Luis A.; Taylor, Alaric; Qi, Runzhang; Guldin, Stefan – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Thin-layer chromatography (TLC) is one of the basic analytical procedures in chemistry and allows the demonstration of various chemical principles in an educational setting. An often-overlooked aspect of TLC is the capability to quantify isolated target compounds in an unknown sample. Here, we present a suitable route to implement quantitative…

Johnson, Sadie M.; Javner, Cassidy; Hackel, Benjamin J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
The goal of this study was to create an accessible, inexpensive, and engaging experiment to teach high school and undergraduate chemistry or biology students about intermolecular forces and how they contribute to the behavior of biomolecules. We developed an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to probe specific structure-function…
