Mastering the interpretation of molecular spectra.
In the first part of the lecture, the students work in small groups on solving particular problems in structure elucidation, interpreting mass, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, IR, and UV/VIS spectra, optionally in discussion with the lecturers. In the second part the problems are solved by a lecturer.
