This module is not approved as a discovery module


On completion of this module students will be able to:
- undertake a variety of experimental work, with due attention to safety, in the chemical laboratory;
- manipulate a range of apparatus and record data for subsequent analysis;
- synthesise molecules of some complexity;
- determine structural information from spectroscopic data.


The three components of the module comprise:
(i) the preparation and characterisation of a range of inorganic compounds, and the use of spectroscopic techniques;
(ii) the synthesis of a selection of organic compounds, and the identification of molecules using physical techniques;
(iii) a range of physical measurements and appropriate data analysis.
