Laboratory Manual: Introduction to Organic Chemistry is an easy-to-use guide for students at Bachelor's degree level to grasp all the concepts required in fundamental organic experiments, involving observations and the application of theory. The instructions are written simply, covering procedures such as distillation, liquid-liquid separation, recrystallisation, and qualitative analysis for identification of physical changes in functional groups. The lab manual also includes pre-lab mini-assignments to prepare students before the laboratory session, as well as further questions after the laboratory session, to increase their understanding of each topic.
