I have done three different types of lab work: organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, and analytical chemistry. I have synthesized many common compounds, such as lidocaine, triphenylmethanol, sulcatol and performed analyses through 1H NMR, IR, titration, etc. I have done many different techniques, such as cyclic voltammetry, mass spectrometry, electrochemistry,, extraction, distillation, and many more. I have prepared lab notebooks on a weekly basis and had them checked by the TAs. I have also written lab reports asking about the chemistry of the experiment. I always gauge my time in the lab by planning out what to do in a given time, for example, when a reflux is up and running, I prepare other samples that may be required for another step.
