Course detail

Analytical Chemistry II

FCH-BCA_ANC2Acad. year: 2018/2019

This course aims to introductuion students to the basic methods and techniques of instrumental analytical chemistry. Teaching is structured in the following thematic areas: Physical aspects of analytical methods. Analytical signal and its qulitative and quantitative evaluation. Principles of selected instrumental methods-spectrometric and electroanalytical methods, their qualitative and quantitative aspects and practical examples. Potentiometry. Voltametry and polarography (classical, pulse, stripping). Titrations with polarizable electrodes. Electrogavimetry, coulometry. Conductometry, dielectrimetry. Optical methods, their classification, properties of electromagnetic radiation. Refractometry, interferometry, polarimetry, nephelometry, turbidimetry. Electronic absorption spectra, instrumentation. UV-VIS molecular spectrophotometry. Luinescence methods: molecular fluorescence, phosphorescence, chemiluminescence, bioluminescence. Absorption and emission atomic spectrometry. Principles and importance of chromatographic and electromigration methods. Introduction to analytical chemometry. Evaluation of analytical results. Basics of chemometry. Analytical errors and methods of quantitative evaluation.

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 II.
The exam is oral, evaluate the level of knowledge of theory and practice of analytical chemistry and creative approach to solving analytical problems.

Aims

The aim of the course is to provide students with an overview of selected instrumental analytical methods from the field of electrochemistry, spectrophotometry and separation techniques and to familiarize them with the strengths and limitations of these techniques. Students will also be introduced to chemometric approaches appropriate for processing the results obtained by these methods.

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.
