AbstractPractical Introduction to Experimental Methods in Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry
ObjectiveTo acquire a sound knowledge of the instrumentation and methods for the analysis of molecules, including organic compounds and biological molecules.

To learnabout the most important practical techniques in analytical chemistry.

To write critical reports for each experiment and analytical technique.
ContentThe course will comprise of maximum 10 experiments from the following themes: Spectroscopic structural characterisation, analytical characterisation, Bio-physical characterisation. Experiments that will be part of this curriculum are: Circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy, UV spectroscopy, Mass Spectromety, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, HPLC and Size exclusion separations, Isothermal titration calorimetry as well as a number of other bio-physical and biological characterisation techniques.
