Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module builds on previous practical chemistry modules by offering a choice of two further optional practical modules (each 5 CATS, with a choice of two modules out of 5 modules offered) and the presentation of a piece of published research work through a poster presentation.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to: Complete individual COSHH assessments for a diverse range of experiments Design synthetic and measurement experiments on the basis of input from laboratory scripts, literature sources, previous experiments and advice from demonstrators. Perform advanced synthetic techniques such as column chromatography, manipulation of air sensitive compounds and emulsion polymerisation. Understand and assess the spectroscopic etc. properties of new or unknown organic, organometallic or natural products in relation to their identity, purity and physico-chemical properties as appropriate. Present the results of their studies, including aspects of research work in a full laboratory report for each experimental unit. Present an area of research in the style of a poster
