Highlights of this Course

This course provides a detailed description of the term project, "Determination of an Unknown Organic Compound," and includes two completed student projects.

Course Description

This course covers modern and advanced methods of elucidation of the structures of organic molecules, including NMR, MS, and IR (among others). The fundamental physical and chemical principles of each method will be discussed. The major emphasis of this course is on structure determination by way of interpreting the data (generally in the form of a spectrum or spectra) that each method provides.
