Overview

This collection of challenging experiments will help get readers up to speed on laboratory techniques, safety and experimental procedures. Each experiment is presented with concise objectives, a comprehensive list of techniques, and detailed lab intros and step-by-step procedures. Beran also integrates numerous Dry Labs, experiments that do not involve chemicals but reinforce the reader's knowledge of general chemistry topics such as nomenclature, oxidation numbers, and atomic and molecular structure.
