|Prerequisites for Module|
In addition to course entry requirements, students must be familiar with the basic principles of chromatography, spectroscopy and electrochemistry.
Aims of Module
To extend the study of Instrumental Analytical Chemistry beyond the core techniques. This extension will encompass the study of newly-developed techniques and topics of current interest in instrumental analytical chemistry. To select a range of appropriate techniques and solve a given analytical problem.
Learning Outcomes for Module
On completion of this module, students are expected to be able to:
|Indicative Module Content|
Study of topics currently of interest in Instrumental Analytical Chemistry. Solution of an analytical problem appropriate to their chosen elective requiring a combination of Laboratory techniques.
Indicative Student Workload
Mode of Delivery
Significant input from industrial speakers which will ensure the topicality and relevance of the unit. The analytical problem solving is normally carried out as a group exercise in the laboratory.
Component 1 is a literature review of a contemporary technique (50%) and individual performance based on a problem solving analytical laboratory exercise (50%)
