An introduction to chemical laboratory techniques and methods with emphasis on preparation, purification, and identification of compounds, elemental analysis, reaction stoichiometry, chemical ionization, thermochemistry, spectrophotometric techniques, and selective descriptive inorganic chemistry. Most experiments involve the identification of unknowns and statistical analysis of data. The experiments in CHM 161 parallel the topics covered in CHM 151. A written laboratory report summarizing the procedure and results for each experiment is required. For science and engineering majors. Honors sections are offered.
