Post Lab Report Format (typed, printed, page numbered, single spacing) (make sure to put Your Name and Your Partner’s Name together)

Title (Adipic Acid from Cyclohexanone)Purpose (why we did the exp.)

Chemical Structure (make sure to put the reference) You can draw your own structure with free software (any chemical structure drawing software is ok. However, put the name of the software below the structures)Safety Information/Physical Data (physical properties of compounds)Procedure (Your own paragraph form (3rd person))Clean-Up (how to clean up the wastes)Observational Data PresentationAny gas formation? Color of adipic acid? Final mass of adipic acid? IR? Briefly explain IR. (See the attached IR in this announcement)Discussion (in PARAGRAPH FORM)What is the ketone? What is oxidation? (What is reduction?)How does nitric acid work on cyclohexanone? What is the oxidizing agent?What is the fume? Is it one of the products from the chemical reaction?Why ice-cold ethanol?Explain your IR data. Is it the desired product (adipic acid)?Is It different from the reactant IR (cyclohexanone) in your lab manual?% yield? Any possible sources of error?References (ACS format for discussion)Side reaction: N/ATheoretical yield: make sure to show your calculation work.Mechanisms: N/AAnalysis of TLC/IR/NMR: show the IR again and explain the IR of adipic acid in detail.Post Lab Questions: N/A
