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…

Pemberton, Andrew T.; Magers, D. Brandon; King, Daniel A. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and computational chemistry are used in concert to evaluate the thermal decomposition of calcium acetate monohydrate, Ca(C[subscript 2]H[subscript 3]O[subscript 2])[subscript 2]·H[subscript 2]O, and to engage students in high-level thinking as they synthesize results…

Nagel, Thomas; Mentzer, Casey; Kivistik, P. Mike – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
This experiment provides students with a thorough understanding of electrolysis and the parameters that most greatly impact optimization of this process. In this laboratory exercise, students will focus on the anodization of bismuth metal to develop thin oxide films. When designing an electrolytic cell devoted to anodization, there are several…

Blackburn, Richard A. R.; Villa-Marcos, Barbara; Williams, Dylan P. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A series of laboratory themed simulations developed by Learning Science Ltd. were integrated into a first year laboratory module at the University of Leicester. These simulations allow students to attempt the experiments they will do in the laboratory in a risk-free way that provides the opportunity to make mistakes and learn how to correct them…

Esselman, Brian J.; Block, Stephen B. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The VSEPR model has well-established limitations in its ability to represent accurate molecular and electronic geometries of simple molecules, which can create a significant need for students to relearn structure and bonding concepts in organic chemistry. We present an alternate method for describing molecular geometries and electronic structures…

Lindsay, Andrew J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A semester-long, project-based series of laboratory exercises is described that provides practical experience of the upstream and downstream processes involved in monoclonal antibody production. This 6 week project is aimed at final year undergraduate students undertaking primary degrees in biotechnology, biochemistry, or related disciplines.…

Niece, Brian K. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Models were prepared by 3D printing that can be used to demonstrate the operations required for the study of molecular symmetry. The models were designed to emphasize the order and locations of rotation axes and to clearly illustrate the more abstract reflection and improper rotation axes. The models were well-received by students in a course on…

Abell, Timothy N.; Bretz, Stacey Lowery – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The Enthalpy and Entropy in Dissolution and Precipitation Inventory (E2DPI) has been developed to measure student understanding of the dissolution of ionic solutes, aqueous precipitation reactions, and the enthalpy and entropy changes that accompany these processes. The E[subscript 2]DPI was designed using a mixed-methods protocol, such that the…

Sterner, Elizabeth S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Polymer chemistry lab experiments present a unique opportunity to allow students to experience the consequences of reaction mechanisms on the properties of the resulting product. In this organic chemistry experiment, students prepared a polyamide by three different reaction mechanisms that represent step-growth and chain-growth methods of…

Cooke, Jason – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
[NiBr[subscript 2](PPh[subscript 3])[subscript 2]] and [NiBr[subscript 2](dppe)] are prepared from nickel bromide hydrate and phosphine. These brightly colored coordination compounds are then converted into the related organometallic compounds "trans"-[NiBr(Mes)(PPh[subscript 3])[subscript 2]] and [NiBr(Mes)(dppe)] (Mes =…

Schubert, Frederic E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The cannon boring experiment of Count Rumford, where eight kilograms of water were boiled by metal on metal friction, is investigated. Consideration of this dramatic demonstration can enrich classroom discussions of calorimetry, units of measure, elements, and thermodynamics. A section pertaining to use of the article in the classroom appears…

Phillips, Jesse A.; Jones, Gregory H.; Iski, Erin V. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Although kinetics forms a foundational part of the chemical curriculum, laboratory experiences with the subject are often limited and lack relevance to the actual practice of chemistry. Presented is an inquiry-based lab focused on Michaelis-Menten kinetics, implemented in an upper-level, university physical chemistry laboratory. Student learning…

Fung, Fun Man; Choo, Wen Yi; Ardisara, Alvita; Zimmermann, Christoph Dominik; Watts, Simon; Koscielniak, Thierry; Blanc, Etienne; Coumoul, Xavier; Dumke, Rainer – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Field trips are a common activity for instructors to engage students and give them a first-hand understanding of a subject, especially in environmental chemistry. However, the planning and execution for a field trip is logistically challenging and demanding of human and material resources. Here, we demonstrate the conduct of a virtual overseas…

"Escape ClassRoom "CSI 1.0"" is an educational escape room proposed as an interactive analytical chemistry exercise for the evaluation of undergraduate students at the end of the subject. This approach is a new form of live action learning activity in which the students have to solve an analytical problem, namely, "an…

Costa, Samuel C.; Fernandes, Julio C. B. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
We developed a simple device to teach the concept of pH to visually impaired people through an experimental approach. An interface between a glass electrode and an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software (Arduino Uno) was designed using an operational amplifier of ultralow input current. A headphone connected to…
