Organic Chemistry with Vernier is a lab book containing experiments designed for use with Vernier data-collection technology in tertiary organic chemistry courses. Experiments cover a broad range of topics and techniques including compound identification, synthesis, chromatography, optical rotation and spectroscopy.

This book makes it easy for organic chemistry instructors to integrate Vernier data-collection technology into the organic chemistry lab curriculum. The experiments involve characterization of reactions and compounds using the Vernier Melt Station, Mini Gas Chromatograph, SpectroVis Plus and the Polarimeter.
