For undergraduate or graduate students taking organic chemistry lab. Ideal for professors who write their own lab experiments or would like custom labs but need a source for lab operations and safety information.

Using a practical, "how-to" approach, The Student's Companion describes all of the laboratory operations that are most often used in a typical organic chemistry course. It provides enough practical information to help students learn the necessary lab techniques and know how to handle problems as they arise-plus just enough theory to help students understand how and why the techniques work as they do.
