A Compendium of Guided Inquiry Laboratory Experiments in Advanced Chemistry

This section of the wiki is for a collaborative lab manual for advanced chemistry. The experiments are motivated by changes in the AP Chemistry curriculum and by the concern that the lab manual being produced by the College Board may not be well-suited to the course. However, this project is in no way sanctioned or approved by the College Board. Therefore, the manual is being written to be applicable to any rigorous, advanced (second-year) high school chemistry course. The College Board's Advanced Placement Chemistry course is one example of such a course.

Editing Wiki Pages

The Getting Started link at the left gives information to help you start editing pages on this wiki.


Almost all chemistry courses are organized by topic. This lab manual is organized the same way. The topics listed below are some of the topics typically covered in an advanced chemistry course. Labs are listed under their topic. To create a new one, edit this page and add the new lab by title under the appropriate topic.

Atoms, Molecules & Ions


Chemical Reactions & Descriptive Chemistry


Electronic Structure


Covalent Bonding & Molecular Geometry

Heat, Thermochemistry & Thermodynamics

Solids, Liquids & Intermolecular Forces


Rate of Reaction (Kinetics)

Equilibrium & Precipitation Equilibria

Acids, Bases, and Acid-Base Equilibria


Nuclear Chemistry

Organic Chemistry
