This lab course is mainly aimed to explain and perform the synthesis of organic compounds that are pharmaceutical and medicinally active. The course also includes estimation of different functional groups, like carboxylic, hydroxy, amino and nitro groups using organic techniques. Characterization of synthesized compounds will be performed by determination of Molecular weights, melting points, and thin layer chromatography.


CLO: 1. To Describe the basic principles for the identification of functional groups of organic compounds. (Level: C2)
CLO: 2. To Perform the synthesis of drugs using organic moieties. (Level: P2)
CLO: 3. To Analyze and characterize synthesized organic compounds. (Level: C4)


  1. NOTE: Practical of the subject shall be designed from time to time on the basis of the above-mentioned theoretical topics and availability of the facilities, e.g. Estimation of functional groups; Carboxylic, Hydroxy, Amino and Nitro groups; Determination of Molecular weights of Organic Compounds. Synthesis of Paracetamol, Salicylic Acid, Methyl salicylate, Azobenzene, Benzoic Acid, 5-Hydroxy-1, 3-benzoxazol-2-one, Aspirin, P-nitrosophenol, 3-nitrophthalic acid, o-Chloro-benzoic acid. Assay of the Drugs like Sulpha drugs, Aspirin, Paracetamol, Benzyl Penicillin, Inorganic preparations. (Note: A minimum of 10 practicals will be conducted).
