    Written / Hands on Homework: 

    1) Acetaminophen Synthesis Lab - If you are choosing to write this up, you need to come to class with a draft written all the way up to the point of mass of recrystallization.    The point is to see if one solution vs another gives a greater percent yield of product.  

    Research Question:   Does re-crystallization with methanol / water combo or with  pure water  or pure  methanol result in more product?

    Please do a little research for your background and come up with a hypothesis.

    2) Simulated Narcotic Drug Testing Inquiry Lab - a choice as a lab write up.  Read ahead of time.  Come with a written hypothesis you must turn in.   Do you believe it is possible to use an easily available enzyme from a fruit to do a drug test with?   If you are not choosing to write this lab up, you must still turn in a results table with a graph and a conclusion that answers the research question.

    3) Pharmaceutical Engineering Lab - 

    This lab is an exercise in illustrating the use of a control vs controlled variables.

    In class we talked about several different dosage forms.   Please research the following and make a hypothesis as to which one should dissolve last. keeping the drug from being released too early for it to be absorbed.  You need to have 1 sentence of info written down about each of these in order to bring them to class and discuss them with your lab group.

    C) Study medical terminology and be able to interpret RX writing as we have been practicing.   Some of you in class will be asked to make a combination of a prefix and root, root and suffix, or all 3 and that will be the quiz questions. Use vocabulary.com medical terminology lists for help.

    D) Know your functional groups - ether, alcohol, ketone, aldehyde. acid anhydride, ester, carboxylic acid, amide, amine, thiol, arene    (Practice making models)

    E) Calculate a molarity

    Key points you should know for testing by the time we finish studying Med Chem:

    Naming hydrocarbons

    Three types of structures / formulas

    Saturated vs Unsaturated molecules

    What are isomers

    Cis and Trans isomers

    Stereoisomers

    Functional groups

    Calculating molarity

    Understanding solutions / dissolving.   Why is dissolution an important consideration for medication?

    Written / Hands on Homework:

    1) As soon as data is available, it will either be posted here or given in class.

    Powerpoint for review prior to class:  (You must take notes in the notes section of your binder)

    1) Medical Terminology ppt

    Students, learn terms on slides 10, 11, 12, 17, 18. 42, 43, 53, 54, 56, 57, 60-62.   You will find a little break in there if you go through them all.  You will have about 4 weeks to make flashcards for all of these.   Have 3/4 of them done this week.That means a total of slides 10 - 12 and 17, 18, 42, 43, 53, 54,56,57.  Put them on notecards and put them on a ring.   I would like the word on one side and the definition on the other side. TA CARD CHECK THIS WEEK so bring them in!

    Written / Hands on Homework:

    1) Begin your lab report for Ethylene and Fruit Ripening ( use the lab checklist in the green box above )

            Write up a draft of your lab report with the following sections:

                                    Title  

                                    Purpose

                                    Research Question  

                                    Hypothesis

                                    Background - use the sheet I gave you and the internet.   (Must have 2 references)

                                    Materials

                                    Methods

                                    Begin works cited with the 2 references above listed.

    2) Choose two functional group from the following and make simple models of them to bring to class.   Be able to explain its parts to the class so they can guess which functional group you have made.
