Specific information

This course cannot be included in the same degree as the course NKEB10. 

Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry.

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to give fundamental theoretical, practical and instrumental knowledge in the field of atomic and molecular spectrometry, and analytical separation techniques. After completing this course the student should be able to:

  • Give an account of basic concepts within the area of atomic and molecular spectrometry, and analytical separation techniques (chromatography and capillary electrophoresis).
  • Describe the principles and construction of instruments used for spectrometric analyses and analytical separations.
  • Explain the chemical principles of spectrometric analyses and analytical separations.
  • Interpret and qualitatively and quantitatively evaluate data obtained from spectrometric analyses and analytical separations.

Course content

Theory of chromatographic separation. Gas chromatography (GC) including sample injection, separation and detection. High performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) methods such as normal phase and reverse phase HPLC, size-exclusion chromatography and ion chromatography. Capillary electrophoresis. Mass spectrometry (MS), manual and computer-based interpretation of mass spectra, GC-MS and HPLC-MS. Molecular ultraviolet/visible absorption spectroscopy and molecular fluorescence.

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of lectures and laborations. The laborations are compulsory.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
