Chemistry Laboratory 2

Module code: F1005
Level 4
15 credits in spring semester
Teaching method: Laboratory, Lecture, Workshop
Assessment modes: Coursework

Learn how to organise, process, analyse and discuss data from chemistry lab experiments. You’ll also explpre computations covering synthesis, product and compound analysis and results processing. You’ll present the results in a scientific report.

You will apply these skills from actual laboratory experiments, comprising simple inorganic synthesis, separation, and characterisation techniques.

You’ll also be introduced to using computers in chemistry. This includes:

  • familiarisation with computations environment and materials
  • know-how on using specialised software and programs
  • an introduction to computational chemistry
  • an introduction to coding for chemistry purposes.

Module learning outcomes

  • Demonstrate the necessary skills and knowledge for writing manuscripts intended to report scientific results from experiments and computations.
  • Show knowledge of of the objectives, the methodologies and establishing the rationales of experimental procedures in a typical chemistry experiment setup.
  • Demonstrate a good overview and understanding of transferable basic laboratory practical skills and techniques within the frame of inorganic experiments.
  • Demonstrate a working knowledge and the ability to use computations resources for chemistry experiments, including a basic understanding and use of computational chemistry methodologies.
