CHM 5500. Spectroscopic Methods of Structure Determination (3 credits)


The student will be introduced to the process by which the modern organic chemist determines the atom-to-atom structure of organic molecules. A review of empirical and molecular formulas, and what can be learned from them, is included. However, the major focus of the course will be teaching the student about the use of a number of instrumental techniques that is used in the elucidation of individual molecular structures. The specific techniques, and how they relate to molecular structure determination, include: UV-VIS (ultra violet-visible spectroscopy), IR (infrared spectroscopy), mass spectrometry (simulated data only), and various introductory and advanced NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy) techniques, including Proton and Carbon-13, COSY, DEPT, and HETCOR. PREREQ: At least 24 credit hours of undergraduate coursework in chemistry or consent of the instructor and the department chair.
