The course provides an understanding of the interaction of atoms/molecules with electromagnetic radiation. Depending on properties of the radiation different atomic/molecular processes occur, which constitute different branches of spectroscopy, e.g. nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. A survey of the most common spectroscopic methods and techniques is presented, i.e. NMR, UV-VIS and IR spectroscopy. The course outlines what molecular information can be obtained by means of the different methods/techniques. Given also is an overview of some common applications in chemistry, biosciences and biotechnology.
The course will be given in english if foreign students participate.
Fundamentals of Chemistry, 15 ECTS (5KE080), or the equivalent.
