  1. 1. ORGANIC CHM 250 lab-what to expect? By : Dr. Robert D. Craig, Ph.D
  2. 2. In the past-1980’s• Large text books• Needed to memorize “Reactions of functional groups and mechanism”
  3. 3. Chemials you are dealing with• Are ofcourse-are Acids –Bases or Organic!• They have high vapour pressures• They are Flammable
  4. 4. Safety in a car
  5. 5. Safety in the lab
