Organisation and examination
Teaching in the second semester
Units courses prerequisite and corequisite
Prerequisite or corequisite units are presented within each program
Learning unit contents
The course is centered on the thorough study of one or several natural products included in a biological matrix. The main objective of this course is to increase knowledge in organic analysis (extraction processes, purification and identification of natural molecules), in chromatographic and spectroscopic methods.
This course is centered on the achievement of a group work in the laboratory and relies on the following steps: 1- Definition of the research project 2- Up-to-date bibliographic search (state of the art) 3- Preparation of the working strategy and main tasks (oral presentation in english) 4- Realisation of the project in the laboratory 5- Drafting of a synthetic report on the project and the results obtained
Learning outcomes of the learning unit
How to use synergically the extraction, purification and identification (physical as well as chemical) techniques of organic molecules contained in complex biological matrixes. After completing the course the student is expected to - to present a research project - to carry out the project at the laboratory - to use, in synergistic manner, the techniques of extraction, purification and identification of organic compounds - to identify organic molecules contained in complex biological matrices
Prerequisite knowledge and skills
-- CHIM 9245-1 - Chromatographic analysis
--CHIM0718-1 - Biological chemistry and corresponding processes engineering
Planned learning activities and teaching methods
This course is based on the PBL ("Problem-Based Learning") learning method mainly in laboratory. For security reasons, access to the laboratory is authorized only for Students with a lab coat, their safety glasses and in order of registration. Glasses should be worn when handling.
Mode of delivery (face-to-face ; distance-learning)
Practical Works : 44h (+4h discussion and presentation of the results)
Recommended or required readings
Papers in International Journals; bibliography available at the library
Assessment methods and criteria
Personal report presented in english at the end of the lessons (100%). The presence in the laboratory is mandatory.
For the realisation of the laboratory work, all the equipment of the Biomass and Green Technologies Lab is at the disposal of the students.
