In this interactive session, we will explore how chemists analyse their samples, using aspirin as an example. We will discuss infrared (IR) spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, and you'll get the chance to use molecular modelling software to visualise aspirin in 3D as well!
