An Everyday Approach to Chemical Investigation
Chemistry: An Everyday Approach to Chemical Investigation
is intended to accompany any mainstream general chemistry
course, and consists of 27 experiments that can be completed using
only chemicals found in consumer products. The manual is an ideal
resource for courses emphasizing green chemistry
the use of hazardous materials is reduced or eliminated altogether.
Many of the experiments requiring simple equipment and glassware
can be performed at remote sites providing laboratory experience
for use with on-line or long distance learning courses.
The advantages of using accessible materials in chemistry
laboratory are considerable. Students can reinforce lecture
discussions while working with familiar materials. For
instructors, assembling the chemicals required for a lab course can
be accomplished with limited budgets and without access to a
chemical company. Problems with safety and waste disposal are
