To succeed in this topic, you need to:

  • Be familiar with the molecular structure of organic compounds.
  • Be familiar with instrumental analysis using mass spectra, infrared spectra and nuclear-magnetic-resonance (NMR).
  • Be familiar with chemical tests used to identify organic functional groups.

After working through this Chemistry Factsheet, you will:

  • Be able to correctly interpret mass spectra to determine the molecular ion peak and predict simple molecular fragment peaks.
  • Be able to identify key chemical bonds from infra-red spectra to determine any functional groups present.
  • Be able to interpret 1-H NMR and 13-C NMR spectra to determine the structures of organic molecules.
  • Be able to combine analytical evidence to describe the structure of an organic molecule presented in examination questions.
