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.
This course is co-taught with undergraduate students but assessed separately.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Critically analyse how NMR sprectra are acquired and demonstrate advanced and integrated understanding of the factors that need to be taken into consideration when acquiring spectra.
- Critically analyse 1D NMR spectra to a high level of proficency and transmit specialised knowledge of the effects influencing a spectrum from a structural basis.
- Expertly utilise 1D and 2D NMR spectra as structure-solving tools.
- Assignments (20) [LO 1,2,3]
- Mid semester exam (40) [LO 1,2,3]
- End of Semester exam (40) [LO 1,2,3]
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.
The expected workload will consist of approximately 130 hours throughout the semester including:
- Face-to face component which may consist of 3 x 1 hour lectures plus 1 x 2 hour workshop per week.
- Students will also be expected to attend additional activities which are on offer for four weeks: 4 x 1 hour spectrometer training
- Approximately 61 hours of self-study which will include preparation for lectures, presentations and other assessment tasks.
To be determined.
