CHM 371 Advanced Lab - Spectroscopy

Prerequisite: CHM 370 and one additional CHM course at the 345-or-higher level (which may be taken concurrently); OR permission of instructor

The second of four courses in the Advanced Laboratory sequence required for all Chemistry majors. In this course, students will attend a set of lectures on spectroscopy and mass spectrometry and do the equivalent of six (6) experiments that provide both core instrumental analysis experience as well as laboratories for biochemistry, analytical, and physical chemistry. All students will be required to attend at least three research seminars (or equivalent) by visiting speakers each term, read important chemical literature, and do in-class presentations. All required activities must be documented on each student's Advanced Lab Portfolio which must be maintained throughout the four-course Advanced Laboratory series. This laboratory meets one time for four hours each week.
