The fifth edition of this fully accurate and well-tested lab manual contains 15 general chemistry and 20 organic/biochemistry safety-scale laboratory experiments. The experiments are designed to use small quantities of chemicals and emphasize safety and proper disposal of materials. "Safety-scale" is the authors' own term for describing the amount of chemicals each lab experiment requires--less than macro scale quantities, which are expensive and hazardous, and more than micro quantities, which are difficult to work with and require special equipment. This lab manual provides a blend of laboratory skills and exercises that illustrate concepts from the main text.

Michael R. Slabaugh is Professor of Chemistry at Weber State University, where he teaches the year-long sequence of General, Organic, and Biochemistry. He received his B.S. in chemistry from Purdue and his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Iowa State University. His interest in plant alkaloids led to a year of postdoctoral study in biochemistry at Texas A & M. His current professional interests are chemistry education and community involvement in science activities, particularly the State Science and Engineering Fair in Utah.
