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.

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
10+13. NMR and interpretation

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.
