NMR Spectral Interpretation and Organic Spectroscopy: A Problem-Based Learning Approach

Anyone who does organic synthesis and uses spectroscopic data to assign the structures of reaction products will want to attend this course. Topics include: identifying organic functional groups by 13C NMR data; deducing structures from 13C NMR data; understanding 1H NMR spectra; finding connectivity using 1H NMR coupling constants; deducing benzene substitution using 13C and 1H NMR data; and using UV and mass spectrometry.

Registrants will need to purchase a copy of, Organic Spectroscopic Structure Determination: A Problem-Based Learning Approach, by Douglass F. Taber (Oxford University Press, 2007), in addition to their registration and prior to the start of the course.
