Practical Chemistry-CYU4302


Develop the ability in using knowledge in relevant theory in making decisions on relevant experimental techniques and plan and perform an experiment in reaction kinetics, in determining the thermodynamic solubility product of a salt, in constructing the phase diagram of a mixture of two miscible liquids, in conductiometry, involving a pH meter, in colourimetry and in infrared spectroscopy using a spectroscopic simulator, to work in small groups in performing tasks to achieve goals, to engage in tasks with desirable attitudes; punctuality, resourcefulness and courage, to engage in interactive peer group discussion in planning reaction methodology and to develop the practical skills in performing basic laboratory techniques of recrystallization, melting point determination, solvent –solvent extraction, chromatography and distillation.
