Applied NMR and Mass Spectroscopy D, 10 p

Aim of the Course

The aim of the course is to give the student knowledge how to apply modern spectroscopic methods to solve chemical problems.

Course Contents

The NMR part of the course gives basic theory, the components of a spectrometer, the different NMR parameters such as the chemical shift, scalar coupling, relaxation processes and nuclear Overhouser effect, and how these parameters can be used to solve structural problems. Multidimensional techniques, polarisation transfer experiments and solid state NMR spectroscopy are also treated.

The MS part of the course treats different ionisation methods, elemental compositions, the molecular ion, fragmentation mechanisms and search in data libraries. Practical applications are included where mass spectra of different types of compounds are analysed.

Compulsory laboratory experiments are included in the course.
