Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

The goal of this unit is to develop introductory concepts on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy that are most relevant for undergraduate chemistry majors.
Biological Mass Spectrometry: Proteomics

Biological Mass Spectrometry: Proteomics

This module is an introduction to biological mass spectrometry with an emphasis on proteomics, the study of proteins, particularly their structures and functions.
Designing an Acid–Base Titration

Designing an Acid–Base Titration

This learning module introduces students to acid-base titrimetry at a level suitable for an introductory course in analytical chemistry. The module assumes students are comfortable with stoichiometric calculations, particularly as they apply to acid-base reactions, that they are familiar with the general shape of a titration curve, and that they appreciate the difference between a titration’s equivalence point and its end point.
Introduction to Beer’s Law

Introduction to Beer’s Law

This on-line learning module introduces students to Beer’s law with particular attention to the relationships between absorbance, transmittance, and power, and to the fundamental, instrumental, and chemical limitations inherent in the application of Beer’s law.
Introduction to Data and the Analysis of Data

Introduction to Data and the Analysis of Data

This module introduces students to ways of thinking about and working with data using, as a case study, the analysis of 1.69-oz packages of plain M&Ms.
Electrochemical Methods of Analysis

Electrochemical Methods of Analysis

A series of collaborative learning activities and accompanying text that develop fundamental aspects of electrochemistry and electrochemical methods of analysis. These activities are intended to be done in class by students working in groups, but can be modified for use as out-of-class exercises. Learning objectives and an instructor’s manual are provided as well.
Interpreting the Primary Literature

Interpreting the Primary Literature

These assignments are designed to be capstone activities at the end of units on figures of merit (such as sensitivity and LOD), acid-base equilibria, separations, spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, and electrochemistry. Each assignment consists of an out-of-class reading assignment drawn from the primary literature accompanied by objective questions and a set of open-ended, in-class discussion questions. The assignments are designed to require just one class period and can be used before an exam to review important concepts, examine them from new angles, and apply them to new situations.
Concentration Calibration

Concentration Calibration

A series of collaborative learning activities and accompanying text that develop the concept of concentration calibration, utilizing the external standard, internal standard, and standard addition methods. The module is based primarily on flavonoids, particularly quercetin, as an example analyte. The activities are designed as in-class, small group exercises. An additional out-of-class activity is also available.
Chemical Equilibrium

Chemical Equilibrium

A series of collaborative learning activities and accompanying text that develop chemical equilibrium, including acid-base chemistry, formation of water-soluble complexes, and solubility are provided. These activities are intended to be… Read more »

Molecular and Atomic Spectroscopy

Molecular and Atomic Spectroscopy

A series of collaborative learning activities and accompanying text that develop the areas of molecular and atomic spectroscopy is provided. Chapters on basics of spectrophotometry, ultraviolet/visible absorption, molecular fluorescence, infrared,… Read more »
