Synthesis of Ketones (an interactive tutorial on the Claisen reaction and
synthesis of ketones from beta-ketoesters.)
I got 11 wrong answers in the 9 parts of the 3 hour online tutorial, mainly because some maniac was constantly talking to me. Junks are a menace.
This tutorial requires the Flash 4 plug-in:

To go through the whole tutorial should take a total of a couple of hours after which you should understand the following topics:
-- Using beta-ketoacids in the synthesis of ketones.
-- Mechanism of the Claisen reaction, the reversibility of the Claisen reaction and the choice of base.
-- The Dieckmann condensation and the position of equilibrium in the condensation.
-- The reverse Claisen, which can be used to give acids.
-- The easy decarboxylation of beta-ketoacids.
-- Retrosynthesis applied to ketones which are synthesised from beta-ketoacids.

This above link comes from another BEAUTY:

Virtual Chemistry, the Virtual Laboratory.
You can click on the experiments to launch interactive teaching practicals.
I advise to download MDL's FREE chemical structure visualization plug-in for Windows and Macintosh, to be able to enjoy the full experience of all the links on this page:

And then (you already downloaded Flash 4 plug-in? See above) you should
click the Pre-University Chemistry Course link. And then the rest of ALL the links.
Keeps you busy for a few days, but it is worth it!

Model ChemLab Vers.2.0 Evaluation version.(1.8 MB) Plus free Periodic Table application.

One of the top 5% Chemistry sites. Hoover over "Site Navigation" in top right.

ChemStarter is a well visited online discussion forum. Everybody interested in chemistry from highschools to companies and universities give an interesting broad range of opinions and background. Main discussion language is English but also German is common.
This is a good replacement for "the HIVE", when it is down !!

SPOT software archive. Look also for the rest to the left!
Take a look at the "LABORANT" software:

Laborant Chemstation for Windows (LCS)(english version)
LCS is a chemistry and data analysis program. LCS isn't a chemistry
education program. It's a program for your daily laboratory work.
LCS supports an enormous range of chemical, numerical und statistical
functions. I believe, you´ve never seen such a comprehensive chemistry
program as FREEWARE. (He's not exagerating!)
And there is MUCH more to download.

Remember the first time you ever boiled water? You will certainly have noticed how the steam formed running droplets, i.e. condensed, on nearby surfaces. This was your first distillation. In the following report you will learn how to carry out distillations more scientific.

Every substance has its own physical characteristics such as melting point and boiling point. The determination of the melting point is a simple and fast method which indicates roughly the purity of the substance.

World-wide around 200,000 rotary evaporators and just as many static glass systems are in use. Taking a distillate loss rate of 10%, this adds up to an immense amount of 160,000 litres of solvent polluting the laboratory air and the environment every day. What are the reasons of these solvent losses?

A rotary evaporator is a specially designed instrument for the evaporation of solvent (single-stage or straight distillation) under vacuum. The evaporator consists of a heating bath with a rotating flask, where the liquid is distributed as a thin film over the hot glass surface and evaporates easily.

Are you working with a rotary evaporator? Vacuum generation and vacuum control would optimize the operation mode. How are these instruments used?

When working with combustible materials, the presence of an ignition source entails the danger of an explosion. Its effect is uncontrollable, it might endanger people and destroy material values. Electric appliances and tools used in dangerous areas, are potential sources of ignition. It is important to take measures against the risk of ignition.
THERE ARE a few more TRAINING FILES there.
BTW, this is a real ROTARY EVAPORATOR:

Distil up to 20 litres of solvent efficiently and gently.
The new Büchi Rotavapor® R-220 is designed for rapid, efficient evaporation of sample volumes up to 20 litres. Its broad temperature range from +20° C to +180° C opens up a wide range of applications and ist modular design makes it possible to fully adapt the Rotavapor® to your individual needs. Its superior cost-to-benefit ratio also makes the R-220 a most attractive economic investment.
This is the "small" one:

The top model, which has a display module for vapour temperature and the rotation speed of the flask plus integral Vacuum Controller V-805.

Abbrevations of chemical compounds. If you know an abbrevation like THF or DMSO and want to find the chemical compound then have a look here.

ex post facto – done after the fact
ibid –         in the same place
idem –         something previously mentioned
i.e. –         (id est) that is
in situ –      in place
in vitro –     (in glass) a biological reaction in an artificial apparatus
in vivo –      (in life) a biological reaction in a living cell or organism
ipso facto –    based on the same fact
loc. cit. –    (loco citato) in the place cited
non sequitur –  it does not follow
per se –        by itself
prima facia –   at first sight

Common Solvent Purification Methods
« Reply #5 on: May 19, 2001, 10:52:00 PM »
Some bees might bee interested in how to purify their solvents.  To achieve the highest purity often requires more than just distilling.

This is a nice table of various solvent drying agents and which solvents they are compatible with.  Very useful info for bee's who want dry honey.

Here is a handy collection(table) of liquid reagents along with their molarities and densities.
