Lecture no. 27 from the course: Foundations of Organic Chemistry
Taught by Professor Ron B. Davis Jr. | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
How do organic chemists actually prove the behavior of molecules and chemical structures you’ve learned about in the preceding lectures? The answer: spectroscopy, which entails the observation of the interaction between matter and light. In the first of several lectures on the topic, focus specifically on observations made with the UV-visible spectrum.
