Organic Spectroscopy Lab
ORGANIC SPECTROSCOPY LABORATORY
Credit: 2 credits
The aim of this course is to provide students with a basic understanding of spectroscopic analysis suitable for the determination of the structure of organic molecules. The course will concentrate upon the most commonly used techniques in organic structure determination, i.e. infrared spectroscopy (IR), ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy and gas-chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS). The amount of time devoted to each technique in this course is meant to be representative of their current usage for structure determination.
CO1 Explain the basic concept of spectroscopic analysis in determining the chemical structure of organic molecules.
CO2 Show the appropriate analytical method in conducting the respective experiments and interpret the spectral data acquired.
CO3 Explain the principles of spectroscopy and determine the chemical structure using spectrum.
