Instrumental analysis and molecular spectroscopy, laboratory 1100-4INZ15L
This course consists of selected experimental exercises, devoted to molecular spectroscopy and other instrumental analysis techniques employed in research laboratories Following topics allowing mastering of particular analytical technique are achievable:
1. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) - physical background and applications
2. Thermal analysis of carbon and ceramic nanomaterials
3. Langmuir technique, Brewester microscopy abn ellipsometry studies on effect of selected anti-cancer drugs on lipid organization within a biomimetic membrane
4. Application of resonance Raman effect for the studies of hemoglobine electronic structure
5. Femtosecond Optical Kerr Effect
6. Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectroscopy
7. Composition of the pills determined by IR microscopy and Principal Components Analysis
8. Quantum states studies by means of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy
9. NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) correlation spectra
Type of course
After completing the course, a student should:
a) master the theoretical fundamentals and principle of measurement of presented techniques, be familiar with their practical applications and interpret the acquired results,
b) be able to select the appropriate technique to solve a particular scientific problem,
c) understand and critically assess the advantages and limitations of presented experimental methods.
Oral or written (remote way is possible) test checking student’s knowledge before each lab classes (theoretical fundamentals, aim of the classes, working principle and instrumentation), evaluation of student’s activity during the lab and evaluation of the written report on the experimental results. To get a final grade, all laboratory classes must be passed. One absence is allowed to be worked off at a later date (determined by Lab coordinator).
Materials provided and recommended by group instructors.
