HSC Chemistry: Infrared Spectroscopy


This is part of the HSC Chemistry course under the topic Analysis of Organic Substances. 

HSC Chemistry Syllabus

Investigate the processes used to analyse the structure of simple organic compounds addressed in the course, including but not limited to:

  • proton and carbon-13 NMR

  • mass spectrometry

  • infrared spectroscopy (ACSCH130)

    Infrared Spectroscopy

    Infrared spectroscopy is used to identify bonds and functional groups in organic molecules. This video explores key features on the infrared spectrum of each organic functional group prescribed by the HSC syllabus.
