Module Description:This module aims to provide the student with; Knowledge of the principles of separations systems such as HPLC, GC and Capillary Electrophoresis and their hyphenated techniques. An appreciation of the importance of sample preparation prior to analysis and selection of appropriate extraction method. An understanding of the theory and instrumental operation of spectroscopic methods such as mass spectrometry and UV/Visible spectroscopy and the ability to perform structural identification and purity testing of simple organics using mass spectrometry. The ability to critically analyse data and interpret results.
Learning Outcomes
