Course description
Chemical spectroscopy provides you solid knowledge and exercises about spectroscopy. Spectroscopy is a practical and contemporary way of analytical chemistry. The applications of spectroscopy are used not only in industry but in medical, pharmaceutical, food and environmental duty. You will study about the principle of spectroscopy as a way of structural and quantitative analysis of the compounds.
Purpose of class
Understanding for the principle and usage of spectroscopy in quantitative and structural analysis of chemicals.
Goals and objectives
  1. Understand the principle of absorption spectroscopy
  2. Understand the principle of quantitative analysis of the chemical by spectroscopy.
  3. Understand the way to analyze the structure of the chemical by spectroscopy
