Title:Analytical Chemical Techniques
Long Title:Analytical Chemical Techniques
Module Code:CHEA6002
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Fundamental
Field of Study: Analytical Chemistry
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2019/20 ( September 2019 )
Module Delivered in 4 programme(s)
Next Review Date: December 2023
Module Coordinator: Donagh OMahony

Module Description: This module builds on the module Analytical Chemistry. The learner will meet a broader range of analytical techniques and develop greater independence and competence in the laboratory.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Show competence in laboratory analyses using a UV-Vis, IR, fluorescence, atomic emission spectroscopy instrumentation, and HPLC and gas chromatography instruments.
LO2 Describe the fundamentals and instrumentation relevant to IR, fluorescence and atomic absorption/emission spectroscopy and HPLC methods of analysis.
LO3 Identify and interpret major features of a spectrum and chromatogram.
LO4 Employ lab skills in solution preparation, calibration and treatment of results in delivering analytical protocols associated to spectroscopy and chromatography labs in a safe, competent and confident manner
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).
