Project 4

Project Overview

Laboratory work for Project 2 will be completed in pairs. Each assignment (e.g., workshops, quizzes, reports) must be completed individually.

In Project 4, you will practice almost all of the common laboratory skills you have used this semester in a 2-step synthesis of 1-acyl-2,4-dimethylpyrrole. In addition, Project 4 includes an in-class data analysis workshop that will introduce additional 2D NMR analysis.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this project, you should know how to:

• Plan and complete a 2-step chemical reaction based on a general procedure

• Purify a reaction product by column chromatography

• Connect chemical concepts to unexpected characterization data

• Use certain two-dimensional NMR methods to investigate unexpected product data
