    Molecular Structure and Absorption Spectra (OC)
    • Infrared region
      • Intramolecular vibrations and rotations
      • Recognizing common characteristic group absorptions, fingerprint region
    • Visible region (GC)
      • Absorption in visible region gives complementary color (e.g., carotene)
      • Effect of structural changes on absorption (e.g., indicators)
    • Ultraviolet region
      • π-Electron and non-bonding electron transitions
      • Conjugated systems
    • NMR spectroscopy
      • Protons in a magnetic field; equivalent protons
      • Spin-spin splitting
    See above taken from AAMC content outline.
