The course introduces the three key spectroscopic methods used by chemists and biochemists to analyse the molecular and electronic structure of atoms and molecules. These are UV/Visible , Infra-red (IR) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopies. The content is presented using short focussed and interactive screencast presentations accompanied by formative quizzes to probe understanding of the key concepts presented. Numerous exercises are provided to facilitate mastery of each topic. A unique virtual spectroscopic laboratory is made available to enable students to measure and analyse spectra online. Assessment is via summative quizzes completed during the course period.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO MOLECULAR SPECTROSCOPY
This course was very helpful in reviewing concepts in molecular spectroscopy. A good theoretical background was presented but the approach was very practical. The examples were very helpful.
Some of the questions had wrong answers in the system and hence the actual marks shown is not reflective of the exam. Please see to it that the system has correct answers.
This course helped me to further understand the principle behinds the 3 main spectroscopic techniques: UV/VIS, IR and NMR which is very beneficial for my future career working in a lab environment.
Very informative course that helps beginner learner to understand theory behind three different types of spectroscopy and how to 'read' the spectra. It has challenging quizzes.
