CHEM 443 - Organic Spectroscopy and Structure

(2 units)
Constitutional and stereochemical structure from spectroscopic methods (mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared, ultraviolet).

Prerequisite(s): CHEM 342  (CHEM 242  acceptable).

Units of Lecture: 2
Offered: Every Spring

Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. determine the structure of molecules exhibiting first-order NMR spectra.
2. determine molecular formula from MS, NMR, combustion analysis, and other data.
3. use NMR, IR, and UV-Vis to identify functional groups.
4. apply concepts of topicity and magnetic equivalence.
5. identify and explain higher order NMR spectra and determine the structure of molecules exhibiting non-first-order NMR spectra.
6. determine the structure of complex molecules using 2D NMR methods.
7. recognize and apply the relationship between field strength, nuclear properties, chemical shift, and coupling constants.
8. evaluate the applications of spectroscopic determinations of organic molecules in environmental or biomedical contexts, and explain their impact on societal or technological issues.
