ADVANCED CHEMISTRY LABORATORY
Credit points: 15
In this practical-based subject, you will build on your previous laboratory experience and develop enhanced experimental skills through the synthesis and characterisation of complex molecules, the acquisition and interpretation of advanced spectroscopic and physical data, and the investigation of chemical systems through computational techniques. You will have the opportunity to undertake an integrated and industry-focused laboratory program with the opportunity for industry visits to places such as the Victoria Police Forensics facility or a pharmaceutical manufacturing plant. You will also be introduced to research-based chemistry through integrated experiments. Throughout the subject there is a focus on skill development in a range of techniques utilised in a modern chemistry laboratory that are relevant to both industry and chemistry research, and has a global context.
