In the course Syntheses and Characterisation of Molecules, you will carry out scientific research in the field of organic and polymer chemistry. The course zooms in on the combination of making and measuring active organic components and biobased polymers.

(This minor is also offered in Dutch. Search: Synthetiseren en karakteriseren van moleculen)

PROGRAM DETAILS

You will work in practical assignments on the synthesis of pheromones and the synthesis of polymers from biomass monomers. The course zooms in on the combination of making and measuring active organic components and biobased polymers.

You develop knowledge and skills in the field of organic and polymer chemistry. After the course you can make a structured design of your research and write a report about it. Furthermore, you will have gained insight into workflows in your working environment, such as chemical management.

Topics
Organic chemistry
Kinetics
Organic chemistry of polymers
Polymer Science
Fluid dynamics
Mathematics
Physics
Spectrum interpretation


Practical assignments

  • Synthesis of monomers and polymers from biomass: biobased products
  • Synthesis of pheromones.

You strengthen these competence areas during the program:

  • Knowledge development
  • Knowledge application
  • Research planning
  • Effective collaboration.
  • This minor is also a 2nd year course of the Bachelor of Chemistry curriculum at HAN. 
  • First year of a Bachelor of Applied Science degree completed.
  • or
  • MLO graduates with basic chemistry knowledge, wanting to specialise and further develop in organic and polymer chemistry.
  • Knowledge testing
  • Practical testing
  • Presentation/report
  • Seminar participation.

Students are expected to be available Monday to Friday, 09.00 - 17.45; therefore part-time work or other courses during these times are incompatible with this minor..

Learning methods

  • Lectures and guest speakers
