Description du contenu de l'enseignement

This teaching unit is designed as an experimental one-week microproject to be done under laboratory conditions. Its main objective is to enable students to elaborate and apply their own research program on a topic related to green organic synthesis & catalysis.
  • Bibliographic work on the selected topic.
  • Selection of adequate techniques and methods of organic synthesis to solve a well defined scientific problematic.
  • Set-up & application of an experimental design.
  • Analysis & discussion of the results obtained during the lab session through a written synthetic report and an oral presentation.

Compétences à acquérir

  • Implement & adjust experimental procedures under non conventional conditions. Handle & tackle issues related to such alternative conditions.
  • Perform an organic reaction in an independent manner from its choice, its monitoring and the set-up of reaction conditions, through the isolation, purification and identification of the expected products, to the analysis of obtained results and the management of waste.
  • Get a critical and constructive position towards an experimental procedure, especially regarding the balance between its efficiency and its environmental impact.
  • Work in a collaborative group, manage a project & make relevant decisions, give clear intructions to a collaborator/employee.
