Nagoya University, School of Engineering Lecture information system (SYLLABUS)

Chemistry and Biotechnology Laboratory 1(3.0 credits)

Course Type:Basic Specialized Courses
Class Format:Experiment
Course Name : Chemistry
Starts 1 : 3 Spring Semester
Elective/Compulsory : Compulsory
Lecturer : Faculty of Chemistry  

•Course Purpose
In order to cultivate academic skills, qualities, and abilities to develop engineering, it is necessary to acquire various experimental knowledge and operations. The aim of this experiment is to acquire basic experimental knowledge and operations in analytical chemistry and physical chemistry with backgrounds in subjects of chemical reactions, chemical equilibrium, thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, spectroscopy, electrochemistry, and computational chemistry. It also enhances the development of the ability to organize and analyze data and create reports.

By the end of this experiment, students should be able to do the following:

1. Acquire experimental operation on fundamentals of analytical chemistry and physical chemistry.
2. Deepen the understanding of chemical reaction, chemical equilibrium, thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, spectroscopy, electrochemistry, computational chemistry, etc.
3. Design experimental plans, organize and analyze data, and discuss results.
4. Create a logical report.
5. Acquire the foundation of applied and comprehensive skills required for future professional research.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Elemental Chemistry I & II, Analytical Chemistry 1 & 2 with Exercises, Chemical Kinetics with Exercises, Thermodynamics 1 & 2 with Exercises, Structural Chemistry and Electrochemistry with Exercises, Quantum Chemistry 1 & 2 with Exercises, Safety in Laboratory

•Course Topics
Experiment I. Titration experiment
Experiment II. Analytical chemistry experiment, Instrument analysis experiment, Physical chemistry experiment

The following themes are set as analytical chemistry experiment, instrumental analysis experiment, and physical chemistry experiment.

1. Electron spectrum, 2. Vibrational spectrum, 3. Separation analysis, 4. Electrochemistry, 5. X-ray diffraction , 6. Thermal analysis

Read the experimental guideline before each experiment. In addition, a report task is assigned for each experiment. After organizing, analyzing, and considering the experimental results, submit it as a report by the submission deadline.

Use an experimental guideline prepared for each topic. How to obtain the experimental guideline will be announced during the experiment guidance.

•Additional Reading
Instructions will be given as needed.

•Grade Assessment
Grading will be decided based on the approach to the experiment (positiveness, activeness), logical thinking / judgment for the results, experimental skills and reports. Credits will be awarded to those students who score 60 or more out of 100 points. Grades are as follows:

〈Enrollees after 2020〉
A+: 100-95,A: 94-80,B: 79-70,C: 69-65,C-: 64-60,F: 59-0

〈Enrollees before 2019〉
S: 100-90,A: 89-80,B: 79-70,C: 69-60,F: 59-0

Although the classes will generally be conducted face-to-face, the style of the class may changed into online in certain circumstances. The change of the style will be announced in NUCT.

It is assumed that you have earned credits for Safety in Laboratory.

•Contacting Faculty
Professors and teaching assistants will answer the questions. Besides, students can make an appointment with the lecturers via email or NUCT.
