The programme consists of taught modules, worth a total of 90 credits, delivered in the first six months of the course followed by a substantial research project, also worth 90 credits.
The modules will include both analytical and synthetic topics and a research project from a wide range of areas may be selected.
To provide students with essential skills in the characterisation of materials by spectroscopic, structural and analytical techniques. This will be achieved with reference to organic, organometallic and polymeric materials.
To give students an in-depth experience of chemical research through individual, extended Masters research projects.
To develop confidence in the use of English oral and written skills within a chemical context
The taught modules cover a wide range of modern advanced chemistry and include aspects of:
Spectroscopy and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance
Organometallic and Inorganic Chemistry
X-Ray Diffraction and Solid State Chemistry
Project and Research skills
The taught modules will be delivered as lectures with extensive support from workshops and practical classes. The project and Research skills module will address issues of scientific report writing, presentation skills and database searching as a preparation for the research project.
