General data

Course ID: 1200-1SPEKTBL4 Erasmus code / ISCED: 13.3 / (0531) Chemistry
Course title: Spectroscopy Laboratory B Name in Polish: Spektroskopia B - laboratorium
Department: Faculty of Chemistry
Course groups: (in Polish) Przedmioty minimum programowego - zamienniki dla studentów 4-go semestru (S1-CH)
ECTS credit allocation (and other scores): 2.00
Language: Polish
Type of course:

obligatory courses

Prerequisites (description):

The student should have completed courses in maths, physics and quantum chemistry.

Short description:

Laboratory classes in molecular spectroscopy: UV/VIS, IR, Raman, NMR and "femto".

Full description:

The laboratory course consists of six individual classes, each geared towards teaching a student one of the basic spectroscopic methods used in chemistry. The laboratory classes are aimed at showing the students applications of the methods presented during the lecture for solving scientific problems, and at extending their theoretical knowledge.

1. IR - Application of FT-IR spectroscopy and H / D isotope exchange technique to study structural changes in gelatin;

2. R - Analysis of the Raman spectrum of amides.

3. UV-VIS - Quinine fluorescence spectra;

4. NMR - Analysis of simple NMR spectra

5. NMR 2 - Two-dimensional NMR spectra

6. "femto" - Femtosecond optical Kerr effect in simple molecular systems.

Learning outcomes:

The student should be able to interpret molecular spectra and know the most important applications of spectroscopic methods in chemistry

Assessment methods and assessment criteria:

The final grade is an average of six grades from the individual lab classes, graded on the basis of introductory test, activity during the lab class and lab raport.

The absence in every particular laboratory classes requires excuse. In the additional term students can catch up missed or failed classes. Only those students who have no more than two backlog lab classes have the right to participate in the additional labs.

Attendance at classes should be confirmed by signature on the attendance list.

Practical placement:

Does not apply.
