Course description and aims

Laboratory course introducing to modern experimental methods in physical chemistry. Techniques include several types of spectroscopy such as FT-IR, UV-Vis absorption, fluorescence, mass spectrometry, electron spin resonance and nuclear magnetic resonance, together with measurements and analysis of rate constants, radiation measurements, and conductivity measurements of superconductive material.
This course is aiming to allow the students to understand how modern techniques work in experiments on physical chemistry.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will:
1. Understand how modern techniques work in experiments on physical chemistry.
2. Develop the skills of technical report writing.
3. Have developed communication and presentation skills in science.
