|Level:||Certificate (FHEQ level 4)|
|Supplementary Assessment:||Like-for-like reassessment (where allowed by programme regulations)|
To will give the student practical experience of using a variety of analytical instruments to explore selected pharmaceutical applications; to develop data handling and interpretation skills; to introduce the student to the use of spectroscopic data in organic chemical structure elucidation.
At the end of the unit the student should be able to:
(a) follow written and verbal instructions to use simple analytical instruments,
(b) demonstrate a familiarity with the forms in which data are presented, the relevant units and constants,
(c) perform necessary calculations and data manipulations to interpret results,
(d) draw appropriate conclusions on the basis of experimental data,
(e) present results and conclusions of a practical experiment in written and oral form, (f) interpret spectroscopic data to identify chemical structure.
