CHM338: Intermediate Inorganic Chemistry

The resources in this guide will help you search for substances, property data, spectra and chemical literature to support you in your CHM338 labs.

Intro to Searching for Properties and Data

There are a wide variety of places to find specific data to support you in your Inorganic Chemistry labs. Remember, it's always a good idea to track data back to its original source if possible, especially when you find conflicting values or discover an outlier. This can help you better understand under what conditions the data were collected, and whether they represent an average, predicted or experimental value.

Searching for Spectra

Correlation Charts

Use these for interpretation of spectra. Includes common vibrational frequencies and shifts for various functional groups or common impurities that could result in inaccurate data.
