CHEM 562 - Organic Spectroscopy
Theory, instrumentation and application of spectroscopic techniques in organic chemistry. Focus is primarily on interpretation of data in order to fully characterize molecular structure. Course will not have an established scheduling pattern.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Learner Outcomes Approval Date:
- demonstrate basic knowledge of the theory and applications of optical methods like ultraviolet and infrared spectroscopy, and polarimetry. Students will be engaged in independent projects outside of lecture time that will allow them to gain direct experience in structural identification of organic compounds
- develop a working knowledge of the theory and practice of mass spectrometry, with an emphasis on Interpretation of results
- develop a working knowledge of the theory and practice of tandem methods of chromatography/mass spectrometry, with an emphasis on interpretation of results
- demonstrate a basic knowledge of the theory behind NMR spectroscopy and how theory relates to interpretation of data for 1D and 2D NMR
- apply concepts of lD NMR spectroscopy (proton, carbon, and DEPT NMR) to structure determination of organic molecules. Students will also work on independent projects to gain direct experience in the structural identification of organic compounds.
- dimensional NMR spectroscopy (COSY, HSQC, HMBC, NOESY/ROESY) toward structure determination of simple and complex organic molecules correlate knowledge of organic spectroscopy topics covered in the course with an example from current
- correlate knowledge of the interpretation of NMR spectroscopy toward practical laboratory lD & 20 applications. Students will also work on independent projects to gain direct experience in the structural identification of organic compounds.
