Pros: a lots of hands on experiences
Cons: long experimental set ups
-Usually work in lab from 9 AM-6PM,
-Setting up reactions for di, tri or tetra peptide synthesis, using column chromatography to separate compounds, IR spectroscopy and HNMR to confirm the purity and structure of the compounds. Electrochemistry , cleaning up the electrodes, and setting up electrochemical reactions.Learning about reactions
-The supervisor is very supporting and accommodating
-Most of co-workers are PHD and Graduate students.
-The hardest part is laying the outline of the project, requires a lots of communication with the supervisor.
-The fun part is using separation techniques
