Organic chemistry research and developmental project, synthesis of organic molecules based on literature or competence in the research groups, isolation and purification of organic chemical compounds, analyses of reactions (NMR, HPLC, GC, TLC), characterisation of products, research planning, finding and using external literature, writing a research dissertation.
After ending the course you should: (i) make a safety job analysis on day-to-day chemistry project tasks based on material safety datasheets and the lab recipe, (ii) have knowledge reaching towards the research front in dedicated areas, (iii) be able to do experimental studies e.g. synthesis, isolation of compounds and analysis, (iv) based on your own results develop working hypothesis and plan your own work, (v) be able to use SciFinder for collecting chemical information, (vi) be able to choose a suitable analytic technique for analysing your reaction, (vii) be able to choose a suitable method for purification of products, (viii) have knowledge on how to optimise a purification method (column chromatography/crystallisation), (ix) be able to choose a suitable methods for characterising products, (x) be able to use practically several analytical methods (eg NMR, GC, HPLC, IR, UV), (xi) be able to write a research dissertation with reference, and (xii) give an oral presentation of project results.
Learning methods and activities
Individual research project conducted under personal supervision. Grade will be given based on experimental skills and a written report. English teaching by request.
Further on evaluation
If the report is evaluated as Not Passed or F, a new, or a revised report with significant changes may be submitted for evaluation one more time.
