About This Chapter
Who's It For?
Anyone who needs help learning or mastering spectroscopy material will benefit from the lessons in this chapter. There is no faster or easier way to learn about spectroscopy in organic chemistry. Among those who would benefit are:
- Students who have fallen behind in understanding spectroscopy, protein structure determination, and spectra of organic materials
- Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
- Students who prefer multiple ways of learning about organic chemistry (visual or auditory)
- Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
- Students who need an efficient way to learn about spectroscopy
- Students who struggle to understand their teachers
- Students who attend schools without extra organic chemistry learning resources
How It Works:
- Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.
- Press play and watch the video lesson.
- Refer to the video transcripts to reinforce your learning.
- Test your understanding of each lesson with short quizzes.
- Verify you're ready by completing the Spectroscopy in Organic Chemistry chapter exam.
Why It Works:
- Study Efficiently: Skip what you know, review what you don't.
- Retain What You Learn: Engaging animations and real-life examples make topics easy to grasp.
- Be Ready on Test Day: Use the Spectroscopy in Organic Chemistry chapter exam to be prepared.
- Get Extra Support: Ask our subject-matter experts any spectroscopy question. They're here to help!
- Study With Flexibility: Watch videos on any web-ready device.
Students Will Review:
This chapter helps students review concepts in a spectroscopy unit of a standard organic chemistry course. Topics covered include:
- NMR spectroscopy
- Protein structure determination
- Reading NMR spectra of organic compounds
1. NMR Spectroscopy & Protein Structure Determination
Nuclear magnetic radiation (NMR) spectroscopy is a great method for determining the structures of compounds. It is particularly useful in determining the 3D structure of proteins.
2. How to Read NMR Spectra of Organic Compounds
This lesson describes how to read and interpret proton NMR spectra of organic compounds, including peak splitting, the meaning of chemical shift due to deshielding, as well as peak integration.
