Welcome to JoVE Science Education, the revolutionary video database dedicated to teaching laboratory fundamentals through simple, easy to understand video demonstrations.
The JoVE General Chemistry collection has three main goals: to showcase basic chemistry lab techniques, demonstrate commonly used equipment, and explore the theory behind fundamental methodology. Videos highlight practical topics, such as an introduction to common glassware, as well as the conceptual, like the experimental demonstration of the ideal gas law. As a whole, this collection provides the student with a solid foundation in General Chemistry to take forward into the laboratory.
JoVE Organic Chemistry profiles the techniques and procedures routinely used in the organic chemistry lab. Videos focus on regulating temperature and atmosphere during reactions, as well as post-reaction refinement, through methods like distillation and rotary evaporation. Finally, common qualitative analysis is demonstrated through videos exploring chromatography and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
JoVE Analytical Chemistry takes a broad look at quantitative analysis. The first set of videos focus on sample handling, covering correct preparation, and minimization of sample loss. Subsequent videos cover a wide range of instrumentation including those used in electrochemistry, spectroscopy, chromatography, and mass spectrometry. Altogether, this collection provides a robust guide to sample handling and measurement in the chemistry laboratory.
