Summer 2020 Organic Chemistry Lab Video Series Links

Hi Everyone, it’s been a while… with all that is going on, I figured it was best to share out my organic chemistry lab resources in case anyone is in need. I have a new series of ‘virtual video labs’ which follow myself or our technician going through a few of our traditional face to face labs. I am working on some more resources to round out our hybrid lab approach, and I will try to update this blog when I can. Feel free to use this material, but please respect the creative commons licence:
