Spectroscopic Analysis (6 points)


Leader: Dr Peter Junk

Clayton First semester 2004 (Day)

Synopsis: Mastery of spectroscopy is essential for graduates in chemistry, materials, biosciences and earth sciences. Molecular symmetry, building upon a knowledge of molecular structure developed in level 1 and 2 chemistry is introduced. The principles of molecular spectroscopy and a description of spectroscopic instrumentation are developed and each spectroscopic method is then investigated by solving problems in spectral interpretation. Finally chemical structure determination using multiple spectroscopic techniques is carried out. OHSE matters will be extended using tutorials and assignments with an emphasis on Hazardous Substances, Toxicology, Risk Assessment and Product Stewardship.

Assessment: One 2-hour examination (35%) and one 40 minute test (10%) + Assignments and computer testing: 25% + Laboratory work and short laboratory reports and proforma reports: 30%

Contact Hours: Two 1-hour lectures, one 1-hour tutorial and the equivalent of 3 hours of laboratory activity per week

Prerequisites: 12 points of level-one chemistry and normally CHM2911 (or CHM2912) and CHM2922, students without these should consult the coordinator
