Welcome to the University of Alberta Undergraduate Organic Chemistry Laboratory Website!

On this website, you will find an array of useful information to help you make the most of your time in the laboratory classes. The laboratory experiments are designed to help you develop the necessary basic organic chemistry laboratory skills as well as provide an introduction to useful organic spectroscopic techniques. The information and videos on this website, in conjunction with laboratory lectures and help sessions, are intended to assist you in the learning of experimental organic chemistry.
