MIT - Chemistry Laboratory Techniques - Into Thin Air

by Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT OpenCourseware

Goal: You will be given a small sample of cobaltocene (dicyclopentadienylcobalt) in a nitrogen-filled Schlenk flask. Your task is to carry this material through an "obstacle course" of manipulations without allowing your sample to decompose - as determined by UV-Vis spectroscopy. Beware: This sensitive compound will quickly decompose upon exposure to air!

MIT - Chemistry Laboratory Techniques - The Single-Crystal Shakedown

by Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT OpenCourseware

X-Ray diffraction is an important and powerful tool for determining the solid state structure of compounds. Modern advances have made data collection and structure solution almost routine for many small molecules. To use this technique, however, good quality single crystals are still needed. In this exercise, you will experiment with the art of growing single crystals.
