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.

Introduction. The purpose of this short discussion is to provide a correct yet understandable introduction to thermodynamics. It is intended to replace and not complement the material in your text. The author is schooled in the Oberlin school of...
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Voltammetry; Electrochemistry; Solution (Chemistry)
Experiment with the goal of gaining an understanding of anodic stripping voltammetry and an understanding of the factors involved in performing quantitative analytical determinations, through the determinations of amounts of copper.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Homework; Crystals; Solvents; Solution (Chemistry); Electrons
Experiment with the objective of synthesizing an inorganic complex compound in pure form and high yield and of discovering the chemistry involved in the syntheses. Determining the compound's paramagnetic susceptibility is involved.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Molecular rotation; Spectroscopy, Nuclear magnetic resonance; Chemical kinetics
Experiment involving learning how kinetic information can be obtained from an NMR line shape and determining the activation parameters for internal rotation of the N,N-dimethylamino group in N,N-dimethylacetamide.
