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.
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.
Homepage for Chemistry 106, Environmental Chemistry. The course provides an examination of environmental systems such as the atmosphere and the oceans from a molecular perspective and will critically examine chemical sources of environmental...
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; Handouts; Valence (Theoretical chemistry); Chemical bonds; Electrons; Molecular orbitals
In class, we have used the Valence Bond (VB) approach to understand chemical
bonding. At the qualitative level, VB is relatively easy to use and does not require a deep
knowledge of quantum mechanics and group theory. The electron-dot formalism of...
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Absorption spectra; Molecular spectroscopy; Thermodynamics; Statistical mechanics
Experiment involving an introduction to molecular spectroscopy and the extraction of molecular parameters and thermodynamic properties from an analysis of the vibrational fine structure of an electronic band spectrum of gaseous iodine.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Homework; Problem solving; Chemical bonds; Quantum theory; Molecular orbitals; Molecules-Models
Three multi-part questions with the goal of applying the theory of quantum mechanics and methods of molecular modeling to a diatomic molecule and the polyatomic molecule. It deals with molecular orbital theory and chemical bonding.
Chemistry-Study and teaching; Handouts; Thermodynamics; First law of thermodynamics; Chemical equilibrium
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; Homework; Molecular structure; Molecules-Models; Quantum chemistry; Electrons--Diffraction
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...
