The present educational materials has been developed by our Thai partners, in particular, the Department of Chemistry in the Faculty of Science of Chulalongkorn University of Thailand.
The workbook contains instructions for practical experimentation in organic chemistry using a Small-Lab Kit developed by Chulalongkorn University and containing small scale apparatus, thus, succeeding in the challenge of making experimentation safer, cost effective and environmentally sound. The publication corresponds fully to the higher educational level including Masters Level and can also be used for teacher training for application in higher secondary education.
We would like to congratulate warmly our Thai colleagues for the present publication and for their development of the Small-Lab Kit. The experiments published constitute an example at the tertiary level of application of the same methodological concept as the Global Microscience Experiments Project. We hope that this workbook and the Thai Organic Chemistry Microscience kit (Small-Lab Kit) will be examined by other interested countries for possible use, totally or partially, in their own educational programs in chemistry and biology.
