The analysis of the outcome of a reaction requires that we know the full structure of the products as well as the reactants In the 19 th and early 20 th centuries, structures were determined by synthesis and chemical degradation that related compounds to each other Physical methods now permit structures to be determined directly. We will examine: mass spectrometry (MS) infrared (IR) spectroscopy nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-VIS) Determining the Structure of an Organic Compound

Finding structures of new molecules synthesized is critical To get a good idea of the range of structural techniques available and how they should be used Why this Chapter?

Plot mass of ions (m/z) (x-axis) versus the intensity of the signal (roughly corresponding to the number of ions) (y- axis) Tallest peak is base peak (100%) Other peaks listed as the % of that peak Peak that corresponds to the unfragmented radical cation is parent peak or molecular ion ( M + ) The Mass Spectrum

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
