Module Description:This module aims to provide the student with; Knowledge of the theory and principles behind fluorescence spectroscopy, atomic absorption spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy; The ability to use the combined techniques of UV/VIS, IR, MS and NMR to identify the structure of simple organic molecules; Knowledge of both thermoanalytical methods and electrochemical methodologies with an understanding of application areas;
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Demonstrate the technical skills and specialised knowledge related to spectroscopic, electrochemical and thermal techniques together with concepts such as pH control, equilibria and buffers.
LO2 Apply the knowledge of specific spectroscopic techniques (IR and NMR) to achieve structural elucidation of simple organic molecules
LO3 Apply the principles of chemical analysis for quantitative determination of organics and inorganics
LO4 Demonstrate the ability to interpret and analyze analytical data.
LO5 Justify the correct selection of analytical techniques for a particular scientific problem
LO6 Demonstrate a capacity to integrate concepts across a range of analytical methodology
