Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Molecules; Conformational analysis
Description of how to use the software involved in many of the exercises for Chemistry 164, focusing on answers to frequently asked questions on how to search for conformers in the program Spartan along with a help file from Wavefunction.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Absorption spectra; Solution (Chemistry); Spectroscopy, Atomic absorption
Experiment consisting of preparing a series of standard solutions containing iron and solutions of metallic alloy samples, then measuring the absorption of light by the atoms of the element when the solutions are aspirated into a flame.
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; 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.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Quantum theory; Eigenfunctions; Perturbation (Quantum dynamics)
Handout on perturbation theory in quantum mechanics written by the instructor as a supplement to the textbook. It looks at an approach for the case where a problem differs slightly from one that can be solved exactly.
