CHEM1102 - Resources - Resources for Week 3

Topics and Learning Outcomes

  • Structural Determination
    •  identify the molecular ion, base peak and daughter ions in a mass spectrum
    •  recognize that a fragmentation pattern in a mass spectrum can lead to structural information
    •  recognize the isotope distribution characteristic or bromine and chlorine containing compounds in a mass spectrum
    •  use the information that IR and UV-visible spectra provide to aid in the determination of structures
    •  identify the number and type of hydrogen environments in a molecule and predict the the number of signals in a 1H NMR spectrum
    •  predict the number of hydrogen atoms in each environment from the size of the signals in a 1H NMR spectrum
    •  predict the number of hydrogen atoms on neighbouring atoms from the multiplicity of the signals in a 1H NMR spectrum
    •  determine the structure of a simple compound from spectroscopic data
