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.

Students who have completed sufficient laboratory work will be able to submit reports for the summer resit period. Students who have not completed sufficient laboratory work will be given an opportunity to do so over summer but if they have missed too much, they may need to resit the module as an internal student in the following year.
