For students, DIY hobbyists, and science buffs, who can no longer get real chemistry sets, this one-of-a-kind guide explains how to set up and use a home chemistry lab, with step-by-step instructions for conducting experiments in basic chemistry -- not just to make pretty colors and stinky smells, but to learn how to do real lab work: Purify alcohol by distillation Produce hydrogen and oxygen gas by electrolysis Smelt metallic copper from copper ore you make yourself Analyze the makeup of seawater, bone, and other common substances Synthesize oil of wintergreen from aspirin and rayon fiber from paper Perform forensics tests for fingerprints, blood, drugs, and poisons and much more From the 1930s through the 1970s, chemistry sets were among the most popular Christmas gifts, selling in the millions. But two decades ago, real chemistry sets began to disappear as manufacturers and retailers became concerned about liability. ,em>The Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments steps up to the plate with lessons on how to equip your home chemistry lab, master laboratory skills, and work safely in your lab. The bulk of this book consists of 17 hands-on chapters that include multiple laboratory sessions on the following topics: Separating Mixtures Solubility and Solutions Colligative Properties of Solutions Introduction to Chemical Reactions & Stoichiometry Reduction-Oxidation (Redox) Reactions Acid-Base Chemistry Chemical Kinetics Chemical Equilibrium and Le Chatelier's Principle Gas Chemistry Thermochemistry and Calorimetry Electrochemistry Photochemistry Colloids and Suspensions Qualitative Analysis Quantitative Analysis Synthesis of Useful Compounds Forensic Chemistry With plenty of full-color illustrations and photos, Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments offers introductory level sessions suitable for a middle school or first-year high school chemistry laboratory course, and more advanced sessions suitable for students who intend to take the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Chemistry exam. A student who completes all of the laboratories in this book will have done the equivalent of two full years of high school chemistry lab work or a first-year college general chemistry laboratory course. This hands-on introduction to real chemistry -- using real equipment, real chemicals, and real quantitative experiments -- is ideal for the many thousands of young people and adults who want to experience the magic of chemistry.

Prepared by John H. Nelson and Kenneth C. Kemp, both of the University of Nevada. This manual contains 43 finely tuned experiments chosen to introduce students to basic lab techniques and to illustrate core chemical principles. You can also customize these labs through Catalyst, our custom database program. For more information, visit http: //www.pearsoncustom.com/custom-library/catalyst In the Thirteenth Edition, all experiments were carefully edited for accuracy and safety. Pre-labs and questions were revised and several experiments were added or changed. Two of the new experiments have been added to Chapter 11.

This expansive and practical textbook contains organic chemistry experiments for teaching in the laboratory at the undergraduate level covering a range of functional group transformations and key organic reactions.The editorial team have collected contributions from around the world and standardized them for publication. Each experiment will explore a modern chemistry scenario, such as: sustainable chemistry; application in the pharmaceutical industry; catalysis and material sciences, to name a few. All the experiments will be complemented with a set of questions to challenge the students and a section for the instructors, concerning the results obtained and advice on getting the best outcome from the experiment. A section covering practical aspects with tips and advice for the instructors, together with the results obtained in the laboratory by students, has been compiled for each experiment. Targeted at professors and lecturers in chemistry, this useful text will provide up to date experiments putting the science into context for the students.

This lab manual is organized and written to ensure that non-science majors are comfortable with chemistry labs by making the experiments more applicable to students' daily lives. This approach also serves to make the experiments more understandable. Many labs relate specifically to allied health fields.

For two-semester general chemistry lab courses Introducing basic lab techniques and illustrating core chemical principles Prepared by John H. Nelson and Kenneth C. Kemp, both of the University of Nevada, this manual contains 43 finely tuned experiments chosen to introduce basic lab techniques and to illustrate core chemical principles. In the 14th Edition, all experiments were carefully edited for accuracy, safety, and cost. Pre-labs and questions were revised and new experiments added concerning solutions, polymers, and hydrates. Each of the experiments is self-contained, with sufficient background material, to conduct and understand the experiment. Each has a pedagogical objective to exemplify one or more specific principles. Because the experiments are self-contained, they may be undertaken in any order, although the authors have found in their General Chemistry course that the sequence of Experiments 1 through 7 provides the firmest background and introduction. The authors have included pre-lab questions to answer before starting the lab. The questions are designed to help in understanding the experiment, learning how to do the necessary calculations to treat their data, and as an incentive for reading the experiment in advance. These labs can also be customized through Pearson Collections, our custom database program. For more information, visit https://www.pearsonhighered.com/collections/

This lab manual provides an interdisciplinary collection of 23 extensively tested environmental chemistry experiments — with extensive introductory background material for each experiment. It covers a broad range of methods and provides detailed instructions on calculation of results. Experiments involve, for example: inorganic and organic profile of sediment and soil cores; the pH of environmental waters and buffer capacity; alkalinity of streams and lakes; trace levels of ions in natural waters; conductivity of natural waters; cloride ion in natural waters; colorimetry and absorption spectra; metals in natural waters and in sediments; atomic absorption spectrometry; the chemical oxygen demand of natural waters and wastewaters; the fluorimetric determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons; environmental hydrocarbons; air sampling-particulates in urban air; carbon dioxide in the atmosphere; acid rain; decomposition of pollutants with an application to plasticizers, and detergents. For chemists and technicians with environmental agencies.

Organic chemists looking to build their understanding through lab work can utilize this second edition. There are 21 experiments that are clearly described in the integrated table of contents. Each one highlights the relevance and application of chemical principles to biological systems. The experiments are designed to relate their personal experience to the key concepts, using common household and commercial products. Each one is also written in an accessible way that assumes no prior work in the chemistry laboratory. This makes it much easier for organic chemists to conduct each experiment and gain real world experience.
