赤外分光光度計を活用した高分子化合物の授業 Introduction of Spectroscopic Experiments to a High School Science Class : Characterization of Macromolecular Compounds by Infrared Spectroscopy
For training of hopeful young scientists, Super Science High school (research and development school specified by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan) can be received a budget exceeding 10 million yen. At the department of chemistry of our school, apparatuses, such as Ultraviolet Visible spectrometer; UV-VIS, and Fourier Transform Infrared spectrometer; FT-IR, were introduced for various student experiments and club activities. In the experiments about macromolecular compounds, infrared spectra of synthesized polymethyl methacrylate and nylon 6, 6 and established synthetic fiber and plastic were obtained by using FT-IR. Characteristic adsorptions of functional groups in obtained spectra peculiar to each compound were identified with a database for FT-IR analysis. Through above measurements and processing of results, considerations, we were able to utilize it for advanced learning about organic compounds and macromolecular compounds.
