Title

Traditional Organic Reactions

Learning Outcome

Perform a broad range of traditional organic reactions at the micro scale including: nucleophilic carbonyl additions, hydroboration, nucleophilic acyl substitution, electrophilic aromatic substitution, [4 2] cycloaddition, and photochemical alkene isomerization.

Title

Form Conclusions

Learning Outcome

Make correct conclusions about the outcome of experiments after collecting basic physical data, and after providing unambiguous interpretation of the necessary spectra.

Title
