5.33 focuses on advanced experimentation, with particular emphasis on chemical synthesis and the fundamentals of quantum chemistry, illustrated through molecular spectroscopy. The written and oral presentation of experimental results is also emphasized in the course.
The experiments described in these materials are potentially hazardous and
require a high level of safety training, special facilities and equipment, and supervision by appropriate
individuals. You bear the sole responsibility, liability, and risk for the implementation of such safety
procedures and measures. MIT shall have no responsibility, liability, or risk for the content or implementation
of any of the material presented.
The materials for 5.33 reflect the work of many people associated with this course over the years.
