Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Learn about separation techniques for Life and Materials Sciences and use this knowledge in solving analytical problems.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to: (a) Subject knowledge and understanding - Understand the theory of chromatographic separation; Know what the main types of modern chromatographic and other separation techniques are; Know what technique(s) are appropriate for different materials; Understand and apply the different considerations for preparative and analytical methods, (b) Key Skills -Operate instrumentation; Design chromatographic experiments and carry them out; Disseminate findings in a written report; Present work orally using visual aids, (c) Cognitive Skills - Realise that different techniques give different types of information that can be used together to build up more complete information, (d) Subject-Specific/Professional Skills - Know how to prepare samples and collect data for each technique studied; Know how to analyse data from each technique; Be aware of industrial applications of the techniques studied; Be able to apply separation techniques for the solving of analytical science problems.
