Learning unit contents

Integrated practical work

The integrated practical work, divided into 4 parts, includes 5 pharmaceutical fields: analytical pharmaceutical chemistry, analytical chemistry, medicinal chemistry, pharmacognosy and pharmaceutical technology. During this integrated practical work, the students will synthesize a chiral active compound and characterize it (particles size, nuclear magnetic resonance, enantiomeric purity using capillary electrophoresis). They will also produce pharmaceutical dosage forms containing synthetic or natural active substances (gastro-resistant capsules of acetylsalicylic acid, paracetamol tablets and thyme tincture-based syrup). These pharmaceutical dosage forms will then be characterized using pharmaceutical technical procedures (delayed-release, friability, disintegration, resistance to crushing, dissolution test ...) as well as different analytical methods in order to determine their qualitative and quantitative content (TLC, HPLC, GC, Raman and near-infrared spectroscopy).

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Mode of delivery (face-to-face ; distance-learning)

Integrated practical work

The integrated practical work will be organized on 5 consecutive days.
Attendance during practical work is mandatory. In case of justified non-attendance leading to an attendance rate below 90%, the teachers reserve the right to take any action they judge necessary in order to allow the students to catch up the session(s).

Assessment methods and criteria

Integrated practical work

First session Each part will give rise to a report, which will compile not only the obtained results but also answers to thought questions regarding the handling procedures and the used techniques.
Second session The students will receive raw experimental data on the basis of which they will write a report compiling data handling and the answers to thought questions.
