Molecules and Research (AMR) 2003/04
Learning Community in Upper Division Chemistry
During the fall quarter, we will
focus on the diode array UV/visible spectrometer (Hewlett Packard), the
Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer (Perkin Elmer) and the
200 MHz nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer (Varian).
The goal of this lab is to help students
understand the important components of the analytical instruments, learn
to operate the instrument independently and to learn the use of the instruments
in chemical analysis.
Students are required to write a
technical report showing their understanding of the theory, instrumentation
and analysis of samples.
In addition to the program faculty, Dr. Sara Huntington will help students
develop good technical writing skills. Credits awarded for the lab will
include credits for the instrumentation lab and technical writing credits.

Lab schedule: Please
print your labs from here (they are linked to MS Word documents). You
will not be provided with copies in class.
On Wednesday Nov. 12th at noon, the candidate
for the Organic Chemistry position will give a lecture on "Introduction
to NMR". Venue will be announced soon. Please plan to attend since
this will replace our class lecture.
You will get extra help for lab analysis from two
of our science instructional technicians. Please see them at the following
times. If you come with a group (at least with your lab partner), you
will learn more than if you show up by yourself.
