Course Description

CH 436 Modern Spectroscopy 3 cr. (2-0-3)

  • Offered: Winter
  • Prerequisite: "C-" or better in CH 111, CH 112, and CH 322 (or CH 325 and CH 327), junior standing or instructor permission.

A study of the principles, instrumentation and analytical applications of modern spectroscopic methods including mass, infrared, and 1-D and 2-D NMR spectroscopy. The theoretical basis for each type of spectroscopy, basic instrument design and spectral analysis will be discussed with particular emphasis on the use of a combination of these methods in structural elucidation. Laboratory exercises will focus on instrument operation and data interpretation.
