Syllabus
Prerequisites: The student to attend the course must have passed the examination of "Laboratory preliminary to the analysis of drugs"
Target skills and knowledge: Learning outcomes
The course aims at providing basic knowledge on the subject and the abilities that are essential for a successful attendance of the laboratory practical activities. Modern instrumental methods as well as traditional chemical methods, referring to the identification of drugs reported in Pharmacopoeia will be studied.The objectives of the course are also defined in view of the preparation needed for the practical test of the State Examinations for the exercise of the profession of Pharmacist.
Examination methods: The laboratory practical activities are carried out by students individually to acquire the ability to identify a compound of pharmaceutical interest or, for some practical activities, consist of instrumental analysis carried out in small groups.
Students are also followed in the laboratory by tutors and laboratory technicians.
Requirements for the certificate of attendance:
- completion of all assigned analyses,
- attendance of at least 80% of the practical lessons,
- participation in the 4 instrumental analysis practical sessions.
Assessment criteria: Generally, the final exam consists of an oral interview preceded by a written test (three subjects).
The final grade takes into account also:
- the results obtained during some multiple choice tests, carried out during the practical activities period,
- an overall evaluation of the performance / behavior in the laboratory during the practical activities
- an evaluation of the reports on the group practical sessions
Course unit contents: Safety and correct behavior in the laboratory.
Safety rules and safety data sheets, IPD, safety and rescue equipment.
Information on chemicals, technics of literature search on paper and on computer databases.
Introduction to pharmaceutical analysis.
Laboratory equipment and basic instruments: glassware, centrifuge, pH meter, electric melting point apparatus etc.
Basic techniques: dissolution, precipitation, development and collection of gas, color reactions, redox reactions, pH and its measurement, flame essay.
General Essays: Search for carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, sulfur, halogens and phosphorus.
Main chemical reactions for the recognition of functional groups in organic compounds.
Main chemical reactions for the recognition of individual drugs listed in the practice book.
Chromatographic methods: adsorption, distribution, ion exchange and size exclusion chromatography. Column chromatography, flat surfaces chromatography, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography.
Spectrometric methods: UV-visible, infrared, fluorescence Spectrophotometry.
NMR spectrometry. Mass spectrometry. Polarimetry.
The practical part of the course consists of individual exercises and / or group exercises concerning:
1. Preliminary practical lessons.
2. Identification of the chemical nature of substances: inorganic, organic, organo-metallic.
3. General Essays for the identification of the main functional groups.
4. Identification of inorganic drugs registered in the FUI.
5. Identification of organic and organo-metallic drugs registered in the FUI.
6. Application of analytical and instrumental techniques for separation and identification of drugs.
