Acetylation of Glucose Formal Laboratory Report: You will complete formal, typed laboratory reports at the completion of every experiment this semester. Notebook pages completed during the experiment and any spectra that is collected should be attached to the back of this report. Each report shall contain the following: (a) Formal Title: Description of the experiment completed. (b) Abstract: Summary paragraph of the experiment and results. (c) Introduction: Explains the nature and relevance of the experiment and should include relevant chemical equations and structures. All chemical equations and chemical structures should be drawn in ChemDraw and not drawn in with pen/pencil. (d) Experimental: Describe the methods by which the experiment was collected or prepared. The procedure should be in paragraph form and include amounts, both in grams and moles. Any changes you made, as stated in observations, to the original procedure should be reflected in the written up experimental section. (e) Results: Summarize major results (yield, color of product, melting point, boiling point, Rf values, IR spectrum major peaks, etc.) in appropriate tables, flow charts, or graphs. Any and all figures should have appropriate captions with full descriptive sentences. (f) Discussion: Explain the results within the context provided by the introduction and should include relevant chemical equations and structures. Discuss overall success of the experiment and specific changes to the procedure that would increase the likelihood of success in this experiment. If experiment was to isolate a synthesized product, analyze results to prove that you have successfully isolated or synthesized a pure product. You will also be given either known spectra or experimentally taken spectra of your starting materials and products. You will be responsible for analyzing this information in your discussion as well. (g) Citations: Provide all references used for the completion of the experiment and writing of the assignment. References should be cited throughout report.
