Lectures and laboratory work with subsequent report writing.
Learning outcome:
The student will learn to evaluate the use of various methods for separation (e. g. HPLC, GC) and conduct separation of organic compounds using GC, LC, various columns and evaluate alternative detectors and interpret the results. The students will obtain in-depth knowledge of and insight into chromatographic theory, and knowledge of chromatographical practices and the theory behind various separation principles. Through independent practical and theoretical study the students will achieve competence in comparing different methods, and gain a basic understanding for quantitative results related to for instance the pollution of food and environment. The students will learn how to prepare and deliver effective oral and written presentations of technical information and of scientific results. They will learn critical thinking, complex and multidisciplinary problem solving, as well as accurately interpretation of current research literature.
Learning activities:
Lectures and laboratory exercises.
Teaching support:
Office hours will be announced on Fronter in the beginning of the semester.
