Students need to be engaged into the lab with real-world instrumentation such as Raman spectroscopy which is highly needed into today's technological world. This study has engaged undergraduate students into problem solving the organic structure of various compounds /functional groups by utilizing i Raman spectroscopy instrumentation. The students understanding of abstract bonding concepts has been utilized by the FBI to solve and analyze unknowns /forensic chemistry compounds of interest.
