Laboratory Manual for General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, CourseSmart eTextbook

By S. Todd Deal

Published by Prentice Hall

Published Date: Aug 15, 2013


This laboratory manual engages students in the process by which chemists investigate the world—the process of inquiry. Written to accompany General, Organic, and Biological Chemistry, Second Edition by Frost & Deal, it can also accompany the lab portion of any one-semester GOB chemistry course. The majority of the experiments include a link to the health sciences, and illustrate concepts from more than one chapter of the text, utilizing basics from the areas of general, organic, or biological chemistry to develop concepts in one or more of the other areas. Using this integrated approach, students develop the skills to help them understand chemistry and to see its applications in their everyday lives.
