What this paper is about
This paper is a mixture of theory and practice on the use of NMR spectroscopy and mass spectrometry to characterise organic structures and is regarded as an extension of the principles learnt at undergraduate level. Students will learn basic theory behind electron impact mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy and interpretation of mass spectra and various 1 and 2D NMR experiments such as DEPT, SELTOCSY, SELNOESY, COSY, TOCSY, HSQC, HMBC, NOESY & ROESY together with what parameters can be manipulated to optimise these experiments. They will also acquire a mass spectrum of their unknown compound.
