Chemistry AS organic practical

Announcements Posted on
    • Thread Starter

    I have a pretty bad teacher for chemistry, and he has decided to put off the edexcel organic chemistry practical till last minute and he hasnt even mentioned what to revise/what it is going to be on. So what do i need to revise?
    From other people, I gather it should include:
    -Mass spectroscopy
    -IR spectroscopy
    -observing changes in reactions.
    THe last topic is very broad so could someone please give me an idea of what reactions/tests to revise? Thanks very much.

    also I would say the oxidation of primary,secondary alcohols.

    Also, if people have done the practical before please do not say anything that is specific for that practical. I want some teaching that i did not receive from my teacher, I do not want to cheat

    Just make sure you're as accurate as humanly possible. And though i don't do Edexcel from our exam board i would say just learn everything as you would for an exam. And if you want to know what it'd like roughly there should be previous years on the internet.

    testing for halide ions
