Course detail

Analytical Chemistry I

FCH-BCA_ANC1Acad. year: 2017/2018

The aim of the course is to give students an overview of the current structure and content of analytical chemistry. The course consists of the following thematic units: The structure of contemporary analytical chemistry. Principles of analytical metrology. Analytical aspects of chemical equilibrium (thermodynamics and kinetics). Explanation of protolytic, complexation, redox, catalytic and induced reactions. Principles of inorganic qualitative analysis, analytical selectivity and limits. Chemical and physical analytical methods. Gravimetric analysis and its present significance. Principles of solution volumetry. Theory of titration curves, titration characteristics and titration errors. Estimation and evaluation of titration equivalent points. The principles of buffering- acidobasic, redox, ligand and cation buffers. Examples of acidobasic, redox, precipitation and complexometric titrations.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Increased knowledge, skills and competencies of students will be reflected mainly in the following areas:

1. Students will understand the relation between the chemical reactivity and analytical behavior of elements and compounds, principles of chemical reactivity of ions, elements and compounds
2. Students will be able to choose the optimal method of classical quantitative and qualitative analytical chemistry and apply it by the optimal way to solve problems of common analytical practice
3. Students will improve their skills in computing solutions to solve simple and complex analytical problems.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course uses teaching methods in form of Lecture - 2 teaching hours per week, seminars - 2 teaching hours per week. The e-learning system (LMS Moodle) is available to teachers and students.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Course credit is awarded for 100% attendance at seminars (or properly excused absence). Credit may be obtained for successful completing of three partial written tests during the semester (ie getting at least 6 points out of 10 possible). In case of failure in one partial test (or more) course credit could be awarded for the successful completing of the final test (ie, obtaining at least 60 points out of 100).
Condition for passing the exam is to obtain credit from the exercise of Analytical Chemistry I.
Examination consists of a written and oral part.
Written part contains calculation examples (3) and theoretical and practical questions (5+2).
It is necessary to reach at least 60 points out of 100 for continuing to oral part.
Oral part of the examination consists of additional and extending questions.
Final classification is mean of both parts.

Aims

The aim of the course is to give students overview about analytical application of chemical reactivity, familiarize them with principles of classical chemical qualitative analysis and with methods of calssical chemical quantitative analysis. The position of analytical chemistry in the system of chemical sciences will be also elucidated.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Attendance at lectures is recommended, but not controlled. Attendance at seminars is compulsory and is checked.
The students' work is controlled by three partial written tests during the semester in computational exercises.
For students in combined form of study are organized consultations on the topics for full-time students.
Consultations are also provided to full-time students on request.
