CHEM 644 - Organic Structure Determination Laboratory

(2 units)
Laboratory identification of unknown organic compounds using spectroscopic instruments (IR, NMR, UV, mass spectrometry); microtechniques; separation of mixtures (GLC, TLC, HPLC).

Units of Laboratory/Studio: 2
Offered: Every Spring

Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. practice methods of natural product isolation and advanced synthesis.
2. operate hands-on the GC-MS, HPLC-MS, NMR, UV-Vis, IR, and other instruments.
3. work in a laboratory without stepwise instructions.
4. improve scientific writing through preparing laboratory reports.
5. prove de novo the structure of organic molecules from real data.
6. discriminate between sound and unsound interpretation of data and employ cogent reasoning methods in the examination of experimental results.
7. design and perform a series of spectroscopic experiments and interpret the data to provide full structural determination, including stereochemistry.
