Structure elucidation contest

While studying the program you might have realised that there will be a Structure elucidation contest on Wednesday (26 March 2014) from 13:00 to 15:00. This will be the fifth contest organised by the JCF Jena, where young scientists can try to unravel a chemical structure by interpreting various spectra, e.g.

  • MS
  • IR
  • UV/vis
  • NMR (1H, 13C, DEPT, COSY, HSQC, HMBC, maybe NOESY)

You are allowed to use all literature and a simple calculator. Here you find a list of literature dealing with the contest and structure elucidation:

  1. Jürgen Popp and Manfred Reichenbächer, "Competition in Structural Analysis—old Wine in New Skins", Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry 405, no. 8 (March 1, 2013): 2411–2414, doi:10.1007/s00216-012-6684-1 ↗.
  2. Manfred Reichenbächer and Jürgen Popp, Challenges in Molecular Structure Determination ↗ (Berlin; New York: Springer, 2012) – ISBN 978-3642243899.
  3. Manfred Reichenbächer and Jürgen Popp, Strukturanalytik organischer und anorganischer Verbindungen: ein Übungsbuch ↗ (Wiesbaden: Teubner, 2007) – ISBN 978-3835101906.

You will get several points for substructures you deduced from the spectra and information you extracted.

We have many nice book prices for the winners.
