UC Irvine, CHEM203 (undergraduate level) Advanced Chemical Experimentation and Instrumentation MIT 5.33 (undergraduate level) Instructors: Prof. Andrei Tokmakoff and Dr. Mircea Gheorghiu (Laboratory Director) Description: Advanced experimentation, with particular emphasis on chemical synthesis and the fundamentals of quantum chemistry, illustrated through molecular spectroscopy. Lecture notes and one
IR spectroscopy experiment are available. Small-Molecule Spectroscopy and DynamicsMIT 5.80 (graduate level) Instructor: Prof. Robert Field Description: Spectroscopy of small molecules in the gas phase: quantum mechanical effective Hamiltonian models for rotational, vibrational, and electronic structure; transition selection rules and relative intensities; diagnostic patterns and experimental methods for the assignment of non-textbook spectra; breakdown of the Born-Oppenheimer approximation (spectroscopic perturbations); the stationary phase approximation; nondegenerate and quasidegenerate perturbation theory (van Vleck transformation); qualitative molecular orbital theory (Walsh diagrams); the notation of atomic and molecular spectroscopy.
