Academic Year: 2020/21
Semester: SEM1/SEM2
Originating Department: Chemistry
Pre-requisites: N/A
The aims of this module are to offer students essential training in methods and instrumentations for measurement, to critical analyze and evaluate experimental data, and apply these measurement techniques to the study of chemical phenomena.
Learning outcomes 
A To use a wide range of experimental techniques to measure physicochemical properties.

B Assess the risks involved in handling instruments in a safe manner

C Process and analyze experimental data using appropriate methods

D assess the accuracy and significance of experimental results

E Apply the results of physical measurement to the interpretation of chemical phenomena

Method of teaching and learning 
defer to S1 20/21 trim down no. of practicals, while all LOs will be addressed.
The module comprises a series of experiments from Physical Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry. The students are required to use a combination of analytical and spectroscopic techniques. A written report is required for each experiment and this includes both the description of the experimental work, interpretation and discussion of the results. The experiments performed cover the following topics:

- Kinetics of the acid-catalysed hydrolysis of ethyl ethanoate

- Critical micelle concentration

- Fluorescence of Rhodamine B and its quenching by iodide ions

- Gas-liquid chromatography

- Thermodynamics of ethanoic acid dimerisation

- Electroplating experiment

- Mutarotation

- Enzyme Kinetics

- Preparation and Characterisation of an Organometallic Complex of Ni(II) using Oxidative Addition

• - Cyclic Voltammetry of an Iron Complex and Copper Deposition
