Welcome to Virtual Biology, a set of realistic and sophisticated simulations covering many of the fundamental experiments in general biology. In these laboratories, students are put into a virtual environment where they are free to make the choices and decisions that they would confront in an actual laboratory setting and, in turn, experience the resulting consequences. These laboratories include simulations for determining the taxonomy of species, ecology, Mendelian and population genetics, microscopy, and molecular biology.

Welcome to Virtual ChemLab Organic, a set of realistic and sophisticated simulations covering organic synthesis and organic qualitative analysis. In these laboratories, students are put into a virtual environment where they are free to make the choices and decisions that they would confront in an actual laboratory setting and, in turn, experience the resulting consequences. The purpose of Virtual ChemLab is to provide a virtual laboratory where students are free to explore the various aspects of general chemistry and perform experiments in an open-ended environment. Given below are details of the two lab benches available in the Organic product.

Organic Synthesis. The general features of the synthesis simulation include the ability to select starting materials, solvents, and reagents to synthesize targeted products; build an appropriate synthesis apparatus; workup reaction mixtures and perform extractions; and use a variety of analytical tools to characterize intermediates and products. The analytical techniques available in both the synthesis and qualitative analysis benches include 1H and 13C NMR, FTIR, Mass Spectrometry (MS), and thin-layer chromatography (TLC). Products can also be purified by distillation or recrystallization. The synthesis simulation allows for over 1,000,000 possible outcomes and contains a spectra library with over 700 spectra for each available analytical technique.

Organic Qualitative Analysis. The purpose of the qualitative analysis laboratory is to help students build proficiency in determining the structure of unknown organic compounds containing a variety of functional groups. The spectroscopic and chemical tools available to the student include 1H and 13C NMR, FTIR, Mass Spectrometry (MS), thin-layer chromatography (TLC), and a set of 15 functional group tests with actual video depicting the results of the tests. The simulation contains a small set of known compounds for practice and a set of over 300 different qualitative analysis unknowns.
