OCR A Level Applied Science Unit G629 Synthesizing Organic Chemicals

Discussion in 'Science' started by IndigoElectron, Jul 12, 2011.

  1. I'm teaching this unit for the first time in September and I'm struggling to get started with my planning. I haven't taught organic chemistry before, but I'm fine with practical work as I've been teaching BTEC Forensic Science for the past 2 years. I really need advice on how to teach this unit, and devise a scheme of learning and assignments. I'm particularly struggling with AO2, industrial manufacture of organic compounds.
    If anyone has any advice or resources, I'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance.

    A03 involves the preparation and purification of two organic compounds, one of which is a useful drug.

    The synthesis of aspirin comes to mind. You can find instructions, and the RSC's new 'Aspirin on-screen experiment', here: www.rsc.org/.../aspirin-screen-experiment

    Also, if you're a member of CLEAPSS, take a look at guide L195 for some good organic reactions - nitration of methyl benzoate and more.
