After an introduction to spectrometric analytical techniques, the student will learn to combine the structural information from NMR/UV/IR/MS-spectra to confirm or reveal the structure of small to medium sized organic molecules.

Learning outcome

A candidate with a completed course will know spectrometry techniques like UV, IR, NMR and MS, and know what structural information can be obtained from different spectra. The candidate should be able to combine this information and deduce the structure of organic molecules from their spectra, and control that the structure comply with all data. The candidate will be able to suggest supplementary experiments to obtain required information to obtain an unambiguous structure of an unknown molecule. The candidate will be able to obtain spectra from the department's spectrometry-equipment (UV/IR/NMR/MS). The grade reflects the degree of goal achievement.


A discussion of the principles for common spectrometry-techniques like MS, IR, NMR and UV; will be followed by a systematic examination of the techniques and the structural information they give for organic molecules. An important part of this subject is to be able to utilize acquired spectrometry-knowledge to obtain structural information from spectra and combine this information to deduce an unambiguous structure of organic molecules. The department's spectrometry-equipment will be applied for some practical work on unknown samples.
