SPECTROSCOPY

Wave Number (cycles/cm)

SPECTROSCOPY

V = Wave Number (cm-1)

l = Wave Length

C = Velocity of Radiation (constant) = 3 x 1010 cm/sec.

u = Frequency of Radiation (cycles/sec)

The energy of photon:

h (Planck's constant) = 6.62 x 10-27 (Ergsec)

C = u

DISPERSION OF POLYCHROMATIC LIGHT WITH A PRISM

Prism - spray out the spectrum and choose the certain wavelength

(l) that you want by slit.

SPECTROSCOPY

1. Spectrophotometer - an instrument which can measure the optical density of a sample at any wavelength.

Fluorometer

2. Fluorometer - measures the intensity of fluorescent light emitted by a sample exposed to UV light under specific conditions.

BEER LAMBERT LAW

As the cell thickness increases, the intensity of I (transmitted intensity of light ) decreases.

R- Transmittance

R = I0 - original light intensity

I- transmitted light intensity

% Transmittance = 100 x

Absorbance (A) or optical density (OD) = Log

= Log = 2 - Log%T

Log is proportional to C (concentration of solution) and is also proportional to L (length of light path through the solution).

A = KCL

K = Specific Extinction Coefficient ---- 1 g of solute per liter of solution

A = ECL

E = Molar Extinction Coefficient ---- Extinction Coefficient of a solution containing 1g molecule of solute per 1 liter of solution

E differs from K (Specific extinction Coefficient) by a factor of molecular weight.

UNITS

A = ECL

A = No unit (numerical number only)

L = Cm

C = Moles/Liter

A = KCL

A = No unitC = Gram/Liter L = Cm

STEPS IN DEVELOPING A SPECTROPHOTOMETRIC ANALYTICAL METHOD

• Run the sample for spectrum
• 2. Obtain a monochromatic wavelength for the maximum absorption wavelength.
• 3. Calculate the concentration of your sample using Beer Lambert Equation: A = KCL

There is some A vs. C where graph is linear.

NEVER extrapolate beyond point known where becomes non-linear.

SPECTROMETRIC ANALYSIS USING STANDARD CURVE

Avoid very high or low absorbencies when drawing a standard curve. The best results are obtained with 0.1 < A < 1. Plot the Absorbance vs. Concentration to get a straight line

2. Calculate the Molar Extinction Coefficient E at 351 nm for aquocobalamin in 0.1 M phosphate buffer. pH = 7.0 from the following data which were obtained in 1 Cm cell.
