    What if you had a school chemistry laboratory free for 1 week which experiment would you do?
    I am in this situation right now!
    It has to be something that requires advanced methodologies and analytical skills but with not so advanced instruments and compounds that are harmful like chloroform .

    We have just made Asprin in A2 Chemistry and it was very enjoyable, however, It didn't take a week. The practical is also rather arbitrary as the product sadly has no use because you can't actually the crystals (for obvious reasons, I hope).

    Synthesising an Amino Acid from simple molecules is fun. The project has lots of scope for development as you can look at the mechanisms, the amount of substance side of things and then organic analysis at the ned of it to really confirm that you have made it!
