CHM430: Molecular Spectroscopy of Bio-macromolecules

3 Credit(s)
This course, which is team-taught covers the theory and applications of advanced spectroscopic methods applied in studying the structure and function of biomacromolecules such as DNA, coenzymes, cofactors and polysaccharides. An overview of modern Fourier Transform NMR, including one- and two-dimensional methods (COSY, NOESY,TOCSY) will be explored. Mass spectrometry principles including examples of the potential, limitations and applications of; desorption ionization; electron impact, interfaced chromatography mass spectrometry and high-resolution tandem-mass spectrometry will be presented. A discussion of the theory and applications of other spectroscopic techniques, including electron spin resonance (ESR), molecular vibrational (raman, resonance raman and infrared) and laser fluorescence spectroscopies also will be presented.
Prerequisite(s): CHM305
