Inorganic Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry University of Bordeaux
This class is divided into three courses, InorganicChemistry,electrochemistry and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR): - ELECTROCHEMISTRY: Students will learn the basics ofanalyticalelectrochemistry. They will understand how the conductivityof asolution can be used to titrate a solution. They will learn howbymeasuring, the potential, the intensity of the electrodessolutionscomposition evolution can be followed. They will also getsomebasic knowledge about the use of ion selective electrodestodetermine the concentration of a specific ion. - INORGANIC CHEMISTRY : students will learn, from the distinction ofthe main types of chemical bonds and the knowledge of the phasediagrams, to approach the stability of the solid with respect to water(corrosion domain / passivation), temperature, partial pressure ofoxygen. - NUCLEAR MAGNETIC RESONANCE (NMR): Students will learn the basicsofNMR spectroscopy, including the origin of the signal (nuclearspininversion, effect of the magnetic field) and the influenceofelectronic density on the transition energies. In parallel,thestudents will learn how to analyse proton NMR spectra and usethespectra to determine the molecular structure of unknownmolecules.
3 WRITTEN EXAMS IN DECEMBER: - inorganic chemistry: 1h30, 50 % weight of overall mark - electrochemistry: 45 min, 25 % weight of overall mark - NMR 45 min: 25 % weight of overall markIn case of failure, a second session is organized for the final exam,either as a written final exam or an oral session, depending on thenumber of failed students. This 2nd session takes place at the end ofJune.
