6cp; 4hpw
Requisite(s): 65212 Chemistry 2 OR 65213 Chemistry 2 (Advanced)


This subject introduces students to spectroscopic methods for the structure elucidation of organic compounds. The subject presents theoretical concepts and methods for the interpretation of spectra obtained from mass spectrometry (MS); infra-red (IR) spectroscopy; ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy; and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Students gain a thorough understanding of the theoretical concepts of the most common spectroscopic techniques and become proficient in interpretation of their spectra. The subject allows students to develop problem-solving strategies for elucidating the structure of unknown compounds.
