Primarily intended for the undergraduate students of science, the book deals with the practical aspects of organic chemistry and discusses how experiments should be done in the laboratory.
The book introduces the various types of components used in laboratories and describes basic techniques used for purification. It elaborates different methods of identification of organic compounds, their preparation, and analysis. In addition, it emphasizes qualitative analysis of organic compounds. The book contains essential experiments done in an organic lab and also explains the theoretical background of reactions involved.
This book is an attempt to provide students with the often used methods in an easy to understand manner, including explanations of theory, procedures and interpretations of results of the experiments.
Besides undergraduate students of science, this book is also useful for the postgraduate students of chemistry.
