About the Book

The Book has been thoroughly revised. Several new experiments have been added. Mechanism of reactions has received increased emphasis. An innovative feature of this new edition is the inclusion of appropriate in-chapter questions throughout the text.

The book commences with a new chapter on safety in the laboratory. This provides the necessary guidelines for working safely in the laboratory. The second chapter describes fundamental laboratory techniques which have been employed throughout the manual. The subsequent three chapters deal with the qualitative analysis and identification of organic compounds. Chapter 6 discusses preparation of derivatives. Tables of physical constants of organic compounds have been expanded. Chapter 7 presents preparations, polymerization and miscellaneous experiments. The application of modern spectroscopic methods to structure determination is described in the last chapter.

With its enhanced and updated presentation, this is an essential source book for both undergraduate and postgraduate Chemistry students.
