Lab Locations
  • The advanced level Undergraduate Organic Chemistry Laboratories are located in the CCIS Building (L1-023 and L1-024)



Course Coordinators
  • Questions or concerns regarding the laboratory components of the course should be directed to Dr. Hayley Wan (orglabdr@ualberta.ca)
  • Questions or concerns regarding the lecture components of the course should be directed to Dr. Jeffrey Stryker (jstryker@ualberta.ca)



General Information
  • Students must obtain a mark of 60% in the laboratory component to pass the organic chemistry course.
  • The overall value of the laboratory component is 35%.
  • Students are expected to attend ALL laboratory periods. Attendance will be taken every laboratory class.
  • Laboratory classes begin promptly at 2:00 pm and finish at 6:00 pm. 
  • Absences from the laboratory class must be substantiated by presenting suitable documentation to Dr. H. Wan or Mr. C. Part within one week of the missed lab. Excused absences for up to TWO laboratory classes will be allowed. The weighting of these missed experiments will be transferred to the final lab exam.



Lab Reports
  • Lab reports are due seven days following the lab class in which the experiment was performed (by 2:00 pm). 
  • Lab reports handed in after the 7-day deadline will have 5 marks deducted per day (up to 3 days).
  • Lab reports will not be accepted later than 3 days after the deadline. In case of extenuating circumstances (such as documented illness, please see Dr. H. Wan with your supporting documentation.



Check-In and Check-Out
  • During Check-In, ensure ALL equipment is accounted for and in good condition. You are responsible for all the glassware and equipment for the entire semester.
