interesting suggestions about unique labs
« on: March 23, 2006, 11:17:42 AM »
Hello,
I'm currently in a student initiated chemistry laboratory course in university, and we are to suggest another topic for study, appropriate for the undergrad level, and the time restraints (ie 3-6 hours).  If anyone has interesting suggestions about unique labs that would be suitable for this purpose, that would be most appreciated.  
Links, or suggestions as to where to look for lab suggestions are also welcome.

Read through the journal of chemical education. You'll find something appropriate.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex

Have you done anything with ferrocene?  If not, they you could try the synthesis of ferrocene.  Here's a paper that might be useful:
