General Lab Information:
All labs take place in room LM6 (basement, south wing) of the chemistry department
There is limited storage available for personal items in the lab
Labs run weekly from 9 am to 1 pm; please arrive by 9:00 so that all groups
can start on time
Note that you should always put on your lab coat and goggles before
entering the lab, and not remove them until after you have left
Pre-lab questions are designed to help prepare you for your experiment. Some can be answered simply
by reviewing the lab manual, while others will require you to think through how the technique works
and why the experiment is conducted in a particular way. Answers should not require
more than 50 words!
Print your name, student number, and demo group clearly at the top of your answers.
For the first lab only, hand your pre-lab in to your demonstrator at the beginning
of the lab
For all other experiments, drop your pre-lab into the box provided either in lectures
or just inside the lab door by the dates and times set out in the lab manual
