Learning outcomes of the course unit

Completing this course will increase students' competences as follows:

1. The student will acquire techniques of organic synthesis in mines and micro scale including purification and separation techniques

2. Students will know the possibilities and limitations of individual instrumental analytical methods

3. Students will be able to interpret measured data and evaluate chemical and analytical approach in general, which will lead to considerable student independence

Course curriculum

This course is overview of experimental science that is based on a well-established theoretical framework where the basic aspects are well established but at the same time are under constant development. Therefore, it is essential for students to develop a strong background in the laboratory and analytical skills.
Basic concepts, techniques and glassware, recrystallization and melting point, distillation and boiling point, extraction, methods of chromatography, spectral methods, identification of organic compounds.


1. Apparatuses for advanced organic synthesis
2. Microfiltration and its technics
3. Dry agents
4. Drying of organic solvents
5. Crystallization and crystallization technics
6. Microscale experiments
7+8. Separation technics
9. Vacuum distillation technics

Aims

The aim of subject is a detailed study of the advanced organic synthesis techniques and methods of chemical research. Modern organic synthesis prefers mini and micro scale experiments requiring special glass and equipment. Organic chemistry is closely connects to the condition of product composition identification and the possibility of separating the individual components of the mixture.
The course structure is designed so that after completing this discipline, students are well prepared for modern research trends in the field of organic synthesis and characterization of organic molecules.
