SpectraSchool is divided into four sections which are navigated using the tab control
at the top of the window.
- The home section contains introductory text, help and a list of
acknowledgements. The home page allows a learning level to be selected, which will
govern the list of compounds available in the spectra section.
- The spectra section is
the heart of the SpectraSchool site. Here you can plot the 1H NMR, 13C
NMR, IR, Mass and UV/Vis spectra for more than 50 compounds contained in the SpectraSchool
library. You may also plot spectra stored in files on your own computer. The spectra

More help on this section is available using the help buttons at the bottom of the

- The SIAS (Spectroscopy in a Suitcase) section includes information
