Microscale chemistry has opened various avenues for quality education and has motivated the imaginative power, responsiveness and skills of students towards environmental protection. This book elucidates the importance of safety procedures in chemistry laboratory along with the introduction of the special equipment used in microscale experiments, as well as its use in conducting chemical synthesis. The book has been designed in such a manner that it will serve the purpose of laboratory notebook which is required by the students to note down details during daily conduct of experiments.
It will also enable the students in developing skills needed to study organic reactions at a more deeper and detailed level. With the advent of microscale techniques in industries and academia, many reactions could be carried out safely with many additional benefits. These have made the conduct of effective chemical experiments possible in developing countries in colleges having shortage of chemicals and funds. There are further many advantages of combining microscale chemistry with green chemistry and microwave-assisted organic synthesis because all of these have a common objective of reducing chemical risks.
The major beneficiaries of this book will be undergraduate and postgraduate students of pharmacy as well as BSc (Hons) and MSc Organic Chemistry.
