    Advanced Techniques for Organic Structure Analysis

    Course Coordinator: Dr Mana Yung, BSc(Hons), MSc(ENVM), PhD

    This course covers modern and advanced spectroscopic techniques for structural elucidation of organic molecules. It provides students with the knowledge to undertake one of the day-to-day tasks of most chemists. Using an interactive approach and case studies, this course will cover the principles of spectroscopic methods with emphasis on the strategy for resolving spectra for structural analysis. Above all, this course will allow students to appreciate modern spectroscopy in scientific research.

    Advisory prerequisite
    Students are advised to have completed CHEM S345 Principles of Chemical Synthesis before studying this course.

    The overall aims of this course are to introduce students to modern spectroscopic methods for the structural analysis of organic molecules and the operating principles of various spectrometers, and to develop students’ knowledge on the interpretation of spectra from various types of instruments.

    Topics to be covered in the course:

    • Ultraviolet-Visible (UV) spectroscopy

    • Infrared (IR) spectroscopy

    • Mass spectrometry (MS)

    • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy I

    • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy II

    Learning support
    There are regular tutorials and surgeries with your tutors throughout the course.

    Three tutor-marked assignments are designed to assess progress in the course. All assignments will be counted towards the overall continuous assessment score. There will be a three-hour final course examination at the end of the course. Students are required to submit assignments via the Online Learning Environment (OLE).

    Online support
    This course is supported by the Online Learning Environment (OLE) where the latest course information will be made available. Through the OLE, students can communicate electronically with tutors and the Course Coordinator as well as other students. To make use of the OLE, students will need to have access to the Internet.

    Students will need access to a personal computer or other electronic devices with an Internet connection.

    Set book(s)
    There are no set books for this course.
