KJM4420 – Analytical chemistry. Separation methods I
Schedule, syllabus and examination date
Chromatographic Theory, Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC), Column Chromatography, Gas Chromatography (GC), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Supercritical Fluid Chromatography (SFC) and Electrophoresis. The basis for the different separation principles and techniques will be addressed. In the laboratory samples will be analyzed by the student.
The student is expected to become familiar with the most important separation methods, their basis and potential use. The student is expected to gain independent laboratory skills in the experimental techniques, and knowledge of the principles behind and the construction of the instrumentation that is used.
Students who are admitted to study programmes at UiO must each semester register which courses and exams they wish to sign up for in Studentweb.
If you are not already enrolled as a student at UiO, please see our information about admission requirements and procedures.
Formal prerequisite knowledge
KJM2400 – Analytical chemistry I or similar course.
Recommended previous knowledge
KJM1100 – General chemistry (continued), KJM1110 – Organic chemistry I (continued), KJM1120 – Inorganic Chemistry (continued) and KJM1130 – Physical Chemistry I - thermodynamics and kinetics, or similar courses.
10 credits overlap with KJM3420 – Analytical chemistry. Separation methods I (discontinued)
The course includes 20 hours of lectures, 8 hours of exercises and a mandatory laboratory course which consists of 7 exercises (80 laboratory hours). Approved laboratory course is a prerequisite for taking the exam.
The first lecture and laboratory lessons are mandatory. You therefore have to be registered at the first lecture and at the first laboratory lesson. If you are unable to join the mandatory lessons, you have to inform the Expedition Office in advance (phone 22 85 54 46 e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org). If you fail to register in either of these ways, you will loose your access to the group lectures and to the examinations for the semester.
Written (4 hours) or oral examination. Letter grades (A-F).
This course offers new examination in the beginning of the subsequent semester for candidates who fail or withdraw during an ordinary examination.
The teaching will be cancelled if less than 3 students have registered for the course by the closing date for course registration in January.
The laboratory course is valid in 4 semesters after it was taken. After that time, a new laboratory course is required.
