Some Spectroscopic Problems In Practical Organic Chemistry
Posted on 1. February, 2017.
Now available: A new book of organic chemistry experiments by Prof Jim Hanson
This book contains a collection of undergraduate organic chemistry experiments which involve spectroscopic methods, particularly IR and NMR in a central role. Some of the experiments illustrate diagnostic changes in spectra whilst others are problems which require the interpretation of spectra for their solution. There are over fifty experiments grouped into chapters on oxidation and reduction, acetylation of aromatic amines and phenols, the formation of C-C bonds, aromatic substitution, heterocyclic ring formation and the identification of unknown substances. Whereas some of the experiments are suitable for first year classes, others may be used with more advanced students and could even form the basis of an extended exercise prior to an undergraduate research project. All the experiments have been used in undergraduate laboratory classes under the author's supervision and most are based on well-established procedures which can be carried out in a normal teaching laboratory.
