Study commitment

Students will on average spend 150 hours over the teaching period undertaking the teaching, learning and assessment activities for this unit.

Scheduled learning activities - campus

6 x 1 day workshops including scheduled online activities.


Students in the chemistry stream of honours embark on a specialist learning program to either enhance their employability in the scientific (chemistry related) industries or continue in higher degrees by research studies. SLE453 aims to help students advance their theoretical knowledge in the core areas of spectroscopy as well as physical and organic chemistries while providing an understanding of relevant industrial practice. In this unit, students will learn how nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy can be used to solve problems in relation to molecular structure and assembly; they will, with appropriate demonstration, understand recent developments in organic chemistry including the theory leading to recent Nobel Prize awards.  They will also be introduced to the specific practical problems associated with chemistry at an industrial scale.
