Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to

• carry out simple chemical operations and measurements (recrystallization, distillation, sublimation, melting point determination, boiling point determination, titration, ...) independently and adhere to basic precautionary measures

• name the basic equipment of a chemical laboratory and to use it correctly

• use the vocabulary of a chemist correctly and to carry out simple calculations (mixture calculation, stoichiometry, yield, ...) which are essential for working in a chemical laboratory

• document the execution and results of the conducted experiments in a meaningful and conclusive manner in their Laboratory Journal.

• isolate reaction products, purify them and determine their purity

Subject of course

Introduction into the language and working methods of a chemical laboratory. The students will learn about:

• Basic equipment of a chemical laboratory/ use and applications of this equipment

• Basic chemical operations, e.g., recrystallization, distillation, sublimation, determination of purity of compounds (melting points, boiling points), titrations, etc.;

• Introduction to the chemical principles that underly the above-named methods;

• proper documentation of experiments by keeping full record in a lab journal (including observations during experiments and descriptions of experiments)

• following a procedure and work-up of a simple reaction, isolation and purification of reaction products
