Incorporation of Benchtop NMR into Undergraduate Instructional Laboratories: Bringing Multi-Outcome Experiments to a New Level

Mengqi Zhang
Chemistry Building, Room 400
Organic Seminar

In a multi-outcome experiment (MOE), there is at least one modifiable unknown component for students to identify. In the three projects in this talk, unknown starting material will the unknown component to identify. Student will utilize a series of modern analytical techniques to characterize the final product, including NMR spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy and melting point determination. This kind of multi-outcome experiments help bridge the gap between NMR theories taught in the lecture and practice with laboratory samples. MOEs required students' independent thinking ability and spectra analysis skills. It also help increase students' ownership of lab reports and provides them with a unique lab experience.
