About the course
Spectroscopy has become an important tool in chemical analysis to identify unknown molecules. This course will serve as an introduction to UV, IR, NMR and MS-spectroscopy and their applications in industry and academic work. It is aimed at chemists and engineers who need a practical understanding of spectroscopy. Numerous example applications will be described including basic knowledge of instruments, instrument operation and spectrum identification. The course also covers instrument and spectrum troubleshooting. The course material is a combination of presentations, documents, software training and instrumental demonstrations as well as case studies.
Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:
- To familiarize participants with the tools and techniques used in spectroscopy analysis and qualitative and quantitative methods
- To provide the skills, knowledge and understanding of principles and practices of spectroscopy analysis
- To understand the recent molecule identification methods.
- To provide all the necessary tools for users to expand their knowledge of analysis using spectroscopy technology
- To solve instrumental and molecular identifying problems
