Structure and Structure Determination
The area of the structural elucidation of compounds has made giant strides since a few decades ago when the chemist was generally restricted to the use of chemical reactions, such as ozonolysis, hydrogenation, and melting points, in establishing the nature of newly synthesized materials. Although some may lament the current trend away from pure chemistry and toward physical methods, one cannot help but be impressed by the array of tools available to the modern chemist and the vast amount of detailed structural information resulting from their knowledgeable application.
