    (i) the ability to synthesise, purify, and analyse small organic molecules
    (ii) the ability to separate and analyse mixtures of organic molecules and natural products
    (iii) the ability to carry out a multi-step synthetic procedure
    (iv) the ability to select suitable chromatographic and analytical techniques for a given analytical problem
    (v) the ability to evaluate the biological activity of organic compounds in simple biological assays
    At the end of the module, the students should also have acquired generic laboratory skills and be able to demonstrate, for example,
    (i) awareness of the value and hazards of chemical reagents
    (ii) an appreciation of laboratory safety
    (iii) experience in researching the scientific literature
