Summary of the Laboratory Activities:
The laboratory course in organic chemistry provides a “hands on” environment that is crucial for developing your understanding of theoretical concepts and reactions.
The important realm of a laboratory course is to expose the student to the safe handling of many different types of chemicals as well as to the myriad of apparatus and equipment used in the lab. The laboratory experience also helps the student to understand and interpret experimental procedures.
On average, on each semester 50 undergraduate students attend this course. Moreover, 20 graduate students work on their projects.

The annual average No. of students, receiving education:
100 students

The annual average No. of samples, received from industries/outside of the department:
2 samples

The annual average No. of samples, received from the students in the department:
20 samples
