Content

Spectroscopy, in its many and varied forms, is employed extremely widely in all areas of the physical, natural and life sciences. Consequently, this unit provides an introduction to the fundamental principles and applications of modern spectroscopy incorporating both the elucidation of molecular structure and the determination of chemical concentration. Areas of study will include the following: electromagnetic radiation and the mechanism of its interaction with matter; derivation, applications and limitations of the Lambert-Beer Law; interpretation of nuclear magnetic resonance, infrared and mass spectra of molecules; basic theory of molecular and atomic electronic absorption; instrumentation for molecular ultraviolet/visible and flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry.

Assessment

Three class tests (25% each) 75%, practical exercise (four laboratory sessions – single report) 25%
