"Techniques in Organic Chemistry" is the most comprehensive and detailed presentation of lab techniques available for organic chemistry students. It combines specific instructions for 3 different kinds of laboratory glassware (miniscale, standard-taper microscale and Williamson microscale) and offers extensive coverage of spectroscopic techniques, with a strong emphasis on safety issues.
