This course is designed to develop an understanding and appreciation of the analytical techniques inherent in modern organic and biological chemistry. Lectures will be focused on the understanding of modern nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) in structure determination and cover both theoretical and practical aspects.

Learning Outcomes

On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. understand how nmr sprectra are acquired and appreciate the factors that need to be taken into consideration when acquiring spectra
2. analyse 1D nmr spectra to a high level of proficency and be capable of explaining the effects influencing a spectrum from a structural basis
3. utilise 1D and  2D nmr spectra as structure-solving tools

Indicative Assessment

Assignment and examinations (20% and 80% respectively: LO 1-3).

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
