Practical Course: Modern Structural Research Methods
The aim of this course is the experimental introduction to the most important, modern structural research methods, i.e. IR-, Raman-, UV-, photoelectron and NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and X-ray diffraction; as well as GC and HPLC separation techniques. During this course the students learn the main parts of the instruments, the sample preparation, data acquisition and processing techniques. Some typical real examples are used to demonstrate the ability of the experimental methodsmentioned above.
