Advanced Mass Spectra

Class Code: 

Subject Area:

Class Location: 
San Diego Area
Class Description: 
This two-day (16 hour) course treats advanced mass spectral interpretation. Advanced topics will include mechanisms that create unexpected fragmentations, rational approaches to understanding observed fragmentation patterns, and determinations of complex molecular structure by spectral comparison using the 'shift technique'. Class examples and exercises will focus primarily on drugs of abuse. Each class is limited to 30 students. Presently, this new course does NOT have POST certification.
Teaching Methods: 
Lecture and written exercises
Students will expand their ability to interpret mass spectra beyond knowledge of basic fragmentations. Students will be able to apply material from this course to interpret the mass spectra in difficult cases. The course has a written final examination.
Attendees should have a working knowledge of organic chemistry and experience with obtaining and interpreting mass spectra. Completion of CCI course 'C111 - Mass Spectra - Theory and Interpretation' or equivalent is a strongly advised.
Bring a calculator. Substantial class time will be devoted to working assigned problems. Reviewing undergraduate organic chemistry will increase understanding of some topics.
CAC members selected to attend will not be charged tuition. No cost to POST supported or State of California based Law Enforcement agencies. A $240.00 tuition fee is required for out of state applicants.
