Classroom Resources: Organic Chemistry
1 – 5 of 5 Classroom Resources
Balancing Equations, Molecular Structure , Functional Groups | High School
In this lab, students will make at least six esters from different combinations of available organic acids and alcohols. In addition, they will attempt to identify the scent of each ester that is created.
Reduction, Redox Reaction, Classification of Reactions, Chemical Change, Functional Groups | High School
In this lab, students will carry out a reduction reaction in order to create a silver-plated test tube that can be used as a holiday ornament.
Pharmaceuticals, Functional Groups | High School
In this lab, students will do some research about common over the counter drugs and then carry out some chemical tests to learn more about their composition. They will then identify an unknown drug sample.
Molecular Formula, Functional Groups | High School
Explore emergency lesson plans from ChemMatters magazine.
Molecular Formula, History, Functional Groups | High School
In this activity, students read Penny Le Couteur and Jay Burreson’s book Napoleon’s Buttons: How 17 Molecules Changed History. They discuss the book in class and complete a written assignment based on the chemistry and history highlighted in the book.
