    Integrated Chemistry Laboratory 4
    Module code: 5CCC0055
    Semester: Semester 2 (spring)
    Module description: Students will build on basic chemical laboratory skills from year 1 and learn to synthesise, purify, and analyse them, and interpret the data critically. They will build confidence in the laboratory environment. They will become equally comfortable with both organic and metal coordination chemical methods. They will learn the basics of a wide range of biophysical techniques for characterising the behaviour and properties of compounds, hence operating in situations of varying complexity and predictability requiring the application of a wide range of techniques. Some assignments are linked, requiring students to provide a dossier with an overview of the full story from basic chemistry to the biomedical context, providing an element of acting with limited supervision and direction, within defined guidelines, and will pool data for analysis thus accepting responsibility for achieving personal and/or group outcomes and/or outputs. They will provide their own literature search and introduction to the project as a whole, requiring the use of a wide range of information sources and information sources. They will gain familiarity with biological materials including proteins and cultured cells. They will gain an overview of the interdisciplinarity and teamwork of chemistry in the biomedical context. They will learn to interpret literature and their own results critically including basic statistical evaluation. The assembly of a dossier of reports will demonstrate an awareness of different ideas, contexts and frameworks. The final project report will demonstrate ability to identify, analyse and communicate principles and concepts recognising competing perspectives. Continuous feedback over two semesters will provide opportunity for self-development and analysis.
