Module Description: This module further develops the theory and practice of analytical chemistry, with specific reference to the areas of spectroscopic and chromatographic instruments, protocols and applications.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Solve quantitative analytical problems based on analytical data using established calibration techniques.
LO2 Explain techniques used for sampling, sample pre-treatment and data analysis as part of the total analytical process.
LO3 Discuss (compare and contrast) operation principles and instrumentation of selected spectroscopic and chromatographic methods associated with modern instrumental analysis.
LO4 Appraise the application of spectroscopic and chromatographic analytical practices in pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed

Requirements

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is mandatory before enrolment in this module is allowed. You may not enrol on this module if you have not acquired the learning specified in this section.
