Lab Report Discussion

Scientific Background (300-400 words)

-Briefly describe the scientific principles and theories that were applied to achieve the objective.

Principles that you should consider

  • How phases changes are used to isolate, purify and identify organic compounds – i.e. boiling and melting points.
  • Chemical Tests
  • Chemical Derivatives
  • Re-crystallization

Connect Theory and Practice ( 300 – 400 words)

Apply your understanding of the theory behind the techniques used to identify the new key steps in the experiment, analyze, and briefly explain these key steps worked to help achieve the objective.

Note: Try to explain why a technique was used and how it worked rather than listing the procedures/steps that you followed. The procedures “add up” to a particular technique with a specific goal – what is that goal and why are the steps necessary?
