SLE229 - Introduction to Separation Science
|Year||2016 unit information|
|Enrolment modes:||Trimester 2: Waurn Ponds (Geelong)|
|Previously coded as:|
One of SLE152, SLE155
2 x 1 hour class per week, 4 x 4 hour practicals per trimester.
SLE229 develops student understandings and practical skills in: classification of chromatographic processes (adsorption, partition and ion exchange); thermodynamic and kinetic theory of chromatography; separation performance (resolution versus retention time); instrumentation for capillary GC (columns, injectors, detectors and temperature programming); instrumentation for HPLC (columns, detectors and gradient elution); and capillary electrophoresis and applications of both GC and HPLC to separation and quantitation of priority substances.
Three in-class tests (20% each) 60%, practical report 40%
