Analytical methods II


Program (detailed contents):


Learning by experimental project: illustrate a topic carrying out various experiments involving analytical techniques.


Organization (proceedings):


Bibliographical work to choose handling and to prepare protocols. Realization of the experiments at the laboratory.


1. formulate  a scientific problem related to  analysis methods in order to illustrate it by manipulations.

2. Make a bibliography with the aim of proposing, adapting or creating experiments which will illustrate the chosen issue. 
3. Gather its theoretical and practical knowledge of the previous years and implement  them to solve  the chosen problem.
4. Plan the experimental work of the group and organize the interactions with the other groups.

5. Explain the principle and learn how to implement the experimental techniques for the analysis.

6. teach yourself on the new  analysis  techniques necessary to undertake  the project when this methods haven't been  taught previously.

7. carry out  an experiment at  the laboratory

8. Analyze the experimental results.

9. Share and debate the results in the scientific point of view with both your teachers and inside  your  students group. Suggest improvements or  work lead.

10. Verbally explain the objectives desired, the chosen scientific approach, and the results of the debate  during an oral presentation.

11. Give explanation on the  scientific approach followed and the results reached in a written scientific report.

Needed prerequisite

- Molecular structure and reactivity.

- Thermodynamics, chemistry, electrochemistry.

- Techniques of separation, extraction.

- Analytical methods: chromatographic, UV-visible, electrochemical

Form of assessment

The evaluation of outcome prior learning is made as a continuous training during the semester. According ot the teaching, the assessment will be different: as a written exam, an oral exam, a record, a written report, peers review...
