This module is not approved as a discovery module


To gain experience and competence in modern laboratory techniques, including the synthesis of chemical compounds and their characterisation by instrumental measurements, and the recording and analysis of a range of physical data.


This module is available as an option with the approval of the Head of the School of Chemistry, and comprises a short series of laboratory experiments which are selected to complement the other modules studied by the individual student.

Typically these experiments will allow experience to be gained in modern laboratory practices via the preparation and characterisation of a range of compounds, the use of spectroscopic techniques and other physical measurements.
