This is the best organic chemistry lab and the students remember and talk about it at the dinner table with families. The set up is easy and the materials are readily available. This lab works well to finish off the organic unit on hydrolysis of esters and saponification reactions. Try it out and you will be happy with the results. We have prepared the soap for the last ten years and the students surely enjoy it. The document includes: an exemplar lab report, the rubric and the answer key to the lab questions.
