SCHM 107L syllabus 

At the start of each lab, we will have a discussion and introduction to the lab (including a quiz).

No Sandals or open toe shoes in lab! Bring Goggles and lab notebook

Late Lab reports: For lab reports that are up to one lab period late, the overall grade for that experiment will automatically be reduced by one letter grade(10 points). Lab reports will not be accepted if they are more than one lab period late. 

Students are responsible for doing their own work on lab reports, including prelab, lab procedure, post lab and questions. Only the data collected in lab is to be shared. Copying anything except the shared data within a group is a violation of the honor code.

5/31  Check-in, safety, tour of lab, introduction of first lab

6/1  Experiment – Physical Methods of Separation and Purification, Experiment 1, QUIZ on Safety & Exp 1, bring Goggles and lab notebook, Theory: Define the different types of separation (decantation, filtration, extraction, distillation, sublimation) and explain what they are good for. MSDS: water, ethanol (ethyl alcohol), sugar (sucrose), iodine, potassium iodide, methylene chloride (dichloromethane). All methlyene chloride must go into the halogentated organic waste bottle. In your conclusion, discuss how effective each separation technique was. If a technique was not as effective as it should have been, explain why. Which technique do you feel is most powerful as a means of separation? Explain why Questions: Answer the questions that appear in the description of the techniques (Q-1 to Q-4). Answer the two questions at the end of the lab.

Question 1 in Experiment 1: heterogeneous vs. homogeneous (chapter 1 in Hill & Kolb) A homogeneous mixture has a uniform composition throughout (it does not matter where you take the sample from). A heterogeneous mixture has more than one phase and does not have a uniform composition throughout. Examples from lab: (1) ethanol and methylene blue (distillation) was a homogeneous mixture (solution). (2) Iodine and sodium  iodide dissolved in water was a homogeneous mixture (solution). (3) But when you add methylene chloride with water, you have 2 phases and therefore it is a heterogeneous mixture. (4) sand and water is not uniform in composition and therefore is a heterogeneous mixture.

Note: In the extraction of iodine, the methylene chloride solution (purple after extraction) should go in the halogenated waste. The water layer should not go in that bottle, only the methylene chloride fraction (you will lose points if you do not dispose of the methylene chloride waste correctly).

6/2  Experiment - Identification of Unknown, Experiment 2,  QUIZ on Exp 1 (separation techniques, attractive forces) & 2 (hazards),  Theory: define physical properties (mp, bp, density, solubility, polar and nonpolar solvents, attractive forces) MSDS: water, ethanol or ethyl alcohol, toluene (C7H8). All toluene must go into the nonhalogentated organic waste bottle (you will lose points if you do not dispose of the toluene waste correctly). In your conclusion, summarize the data that justifies the identification of your unknown. Do the library assignment.
