COVID-19 updates and information. Masking remains in effect in campus buildings.
The theory and practical use of spectroscopic equipment will be explored focusing on the analytical aspects of the instruments and how to achieve proper quantitative results. Commonly used molecular - ultraviolet/visible, fluorometry, infrared, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and Raman - and atomic spectroscopy and mass spectrometry instruments will be discussed and hands-on instruction and data collection will be performed in the lab using a problem-solving approach.
Upon completion of this course, a student should be able to follow a Standard Operating Procedure, run samples on spectroscopic equipment, and collect, interpret, and report meaningful data.
