Organic Chemistry Practical
- Department of Nuclear Chemistry
Practical courses should allow students to become familiar with some basic organic chemistry laboratory techniques and methods of organic chemistry. Synthetic problems are chosen so that student gets acquainted with basic chemical operations, properties of selected organic compounds, and acquire basic skills to synthesize a range of organic compounds. The course complements the theoretical knowledge of organic chemistry.
Completerd course Organic Chemistry 1, enrolled for the course Organic Chemistry 2.
