Analysis of Organic Substances

Inquiry question: How is information about the reactivity and structure of organic compounds obtained?

● conduct qualitative investigations to test for the presence in organic molecules of the following functional groups:
– carbon–carbon double bonds
– hydroxyl groups
– carboxylic acids (ACSCH130)
● investigate the processes used to analyse the structure of simple organic compounds addressed in the course, including but not limited to:
– carbon-13 NMR
– mass spectroscopy (ACSCH19)
– infrared spectroscopy (ACSCH130)
