[Summary of the course] This course focuses on various spectroscopic methods which are important in practical chemical experiments from the viewpoint of physical chemistry. For students at the other undergraduate majors, this course covers the fundamentals of physical chemistry prior to introduction of the spectroscopic methods and provides opportunities to learn advanced science and technology as well as fundamentals in the fields of applied chemistry. Practical molecular spectroscopic methods are explained by applying knowledge of fundamental physical chemistry. "Physical chemistry" by P.W. Atkins is used as a textbook.
[Aim of the course] Knowledge of physical chemistry is important in organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry. In addition, understanding theory and applications of various molecular spectroscopic methods enables students to smoothly analyze data obtained by highly advanced spectroscopy. Students will have the chance to conduct practical chemical experiments by applying knowledge acquired through this course. Topics include various molecular spectroscopic methods and analyses of polymer and solid.
At the end of this course, students will be able to
(1) explain fundamentals and applications of molecular spectroscopy.
(2) explain theory and applications of analysis methods for polymer based on molecular spectroscopy.
(3) explain theory and applications of analysis methods for solid based on molecular spectroscopy.
