Units courses prerequisite and corequisite

Prerequisite or corequisite units are presented within each program

Learning unit contents

The course presents the use of spectral techniques (UV-Visible, Fluorescence, Dichroïsme, NMR, infra-red) in order to identify and quantify molecules.

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

The goal of this course is to give the students the basic in analytical spectroscopy

Prerequisite knowledge and skills

Course of Phisics,general ionorganic and organic chemistry of the 1st Bloc.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

2 practicals of 4hr each
The presence at the practicals is mandatory. Any absence must be justified by a sick note. Access to the exam will not be granted to students with unjustified absences for the practials or who have not submitted a practical report.

Mode of delivery (face to face, distance learning, hybrid learning)

2h per week during 8 weeks in the second quadrimester

Exam(s) in session

Any session

- In-person

written exam ( open-ended questions )

- Remote

written exam ( open-ended questions )

Additional information:

Theory Questions will type "open questions" in order to assess your understanding

You will not be allowed any notes. 

You will need to have the spectroscopic tables (IR / MS / NMR) available on eCampus, printed, and identified on each side by your name, surname and ULG-ID number. No personal notes will be allowed on the spectroscopic tables.

 The final note will be calculated by the following way :
80% for the written exam: 40% theory + 40% exercices
20% for the practical report.

A score of less than 7/20 for the theory part of the exam will lead to an overall score of maximum 8/20
