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 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.
It was a good experience to learn online. This course increase my knowledge an i gain new concept which are very helpful for me and guide me in this field more. THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO COURSERA.
You will enjoy this course very much even if you haven't studied it in your Grad school. The explanations are very easy to understand. Although it's a short course but it is quite informative.
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.
