Session Title

Realignment of the Under graduate Organic Chemistry Laboratory-Toward a Four Year Under graduate Research Experience

Session Format

Presentation Session (45 minutes)

Location

Room 2903

Abstract for the conference program

The new organic chemistry I laboratory program at Georgia Gwinnett College incorporates green chemistry principles, use of spectroscopic instrumentation, stereochemistry investigation by polarimetry, and use of the Avogadro molecular modeling program. The organic chemistry II laboratory experience has been reworked into a semester-long, multi-step synthesis project. Students work together in research groups, first planning a synthetic route for their target compound and then performing their synthesis.
