After this project you are able to:
- independently and safely design, plan and execute a simple organic synthetic experiment based on chemical literature that is presented
- to assess the dangers of a simple experiment to take appropriate action to execute this experiment safely
- interpret spectral and analytical data and draw conclusions from these about the purity and structure of the obtained materials
- work together in a project team in order to contribute to solving a simple molecular problem by analysis, discussion and experimental research
- process (joint) results in a scientific report, poster and / or oral presentation, according to the standards of scientific integrity
The lab is an introduction to molecular construction (synthesis) and kinetics (reaction time) and is a first step in acquiring an academic attitude to scientific experimentation. The student will theory (college parallel reactions and kinetics) against reality, the experiment. With a preconceived goal, substances synthesized, where it is safe to learn to deal with chemicals, glassware and equipment and an efficient implementation of an experiment are paramount.|
In a group project assignments will be carried out to answer a predefined question and will lead the relationship between the molecular structure of substances and their reactivity will lay bare. Meanwhile, communication skills are trained: notebook, reports, oral reports, discussion, presentation (poster presentation).
|This project runs parallel to the topics that are treated in the lectures of the course reactions and kinetics.The theory of the practical course will be tested in an exam.|
The project will finish with a symposium where a poster is presented and a presentation is given.You HAVE TO subscribe to this practical course at least ONE MONTH BEFORE the start of this course.
|• Nucleophilic substitutionreactions|
• Kineticsn thermodynamics in chemical processes
|Student is assessed on the basis of theoretical and practical skills during the project and the reporting thereof. Also, the project will be rounded off with a mini symposium for which a poster and a presentation. The theory of the practical exercises is reviewed in an exam. Assessment criteria are listed in the syllabus.|
|Structure of Atoms and molecules (NWI-MOL079), Molecular structure (NWI-MOL080), and Chemiscal analysis (NWI-MOL001). This is a course in the theme 'Lab and research skills'.|
