(1)   To know the basic principle of spectroscopy;
(2)   To comprehend the basic principles of ultraviolet spectrometry (UV), infrared spectrometry (IR),
nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry (MNR), and mass spectrometry (MS).
(4)   To master the ability of elucidating the chemical structures of simple organic compounds on the basis of the spectra of UV, IR, NMR, and MS.  
The course is learned on the basis of three levels including know, comprehend, and master. Based on comprehending the spectroscopic theory and spectrometric instrumentation, the students should muster how to explain UV, IR, MS, and NMR spectra, and how to elucidate the simple structures of organic compounds from the complementary information afforded by the four types of spectra.  
During the past several decades, spectroscopic techniques including ultraviolet (UV), infrared (IR), mass (MS), and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) have been developed to be the most reliable and most efficient means for gaining insight into the molecular secrets of nature. Therefore, it’s useful and interesting to learn how to reveal the molecular secrets with the spectroscopic techniques. 
The course is going to be taught on the basis of five chapters including UV spectroscopy (chapter one, 4 hour periods), IR spectroscopy (chapter two, 8 hour periods), MS spectroscopy (chapter three, 8 hour periods), NMR spectroscopy (chapter four, 12 hour periods), and combination (chapter five, 4 hour periods), totally 36 hour periods.
During the course, we spend a minimum amount of time on the spectrometric instrumentation, but we do explain the spectrometric theory and their spectra. It’s important to utilize the four spectra to elucidate the chemical structures of organic compounds. For achieving this purpose, we are going to give more examples of the spectra during the course. Moreover, we are going to select some simple and quality spectra including UV, IR, NMR, and MS from our researches as examples to explain during the course for arousing the interest of the students. In summary, the combination of theory and application is the characteristic of the course.
