The course is aimed at understanding of isolation and separation techniques used for separations of complex mixtures of compounds obtained from natural materials or prepared in a laboratory. Emphasized are alternative methods and selection of a suitable method according to the properties of a target organic compound. After product isolation it is necessary to identify and characterize a given compound. For that reason, attention is paid to suitable physico-chemical methods.
