Introduction. In class we observed that no reaction goes to completion and have discussed qualitatively the consequences of this insight. It is also possible to deal quantitatively with chemical equilibria. The chemist's approach should start with...
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Spectroscopy, Nuclear magnetic resonance;
Experiment designed to introduce the fundamental principles and practice of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), a form of NMR spectroscopy, by obtaining and examining a two-dimensional image of the stem or bud from a plant.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Spectroscopy, Nuclear magnetic resonance
Experiment previously used in the course and focused on selective irradiation and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), specifically involving homonuclear decoupling and the NOE (nuclear Overhauser enhancement) difference experiment.

This is the Molecular Zoo entry for furan and therefore describes the detailed three-dimensional, gas-phase structure of furan produced by instrumental and computational methods. It also offers a critical comparison of these various experimental...
